Per Southwest Airlines,

 

We are excited to announce that as of January 1, Pet fares and Unaccompanied Minor (UM) charges are refundable! 

 

Customers may obtain a refund for their Pets fare ($95 each way) for the following reasons:

  • The Customer cancels their reservation and the pet does not travel
  • The Customer’s flight is canceled and they elect not to rebook

Customers may obtain a refund for their Unaccompanied Minor charge ($50 each way) for the following reasons:

  • The Customer cancels their reservation and the UM does not travel
  • The Customer’s flight is canceled and they elect not to rebook
  • The child is joined by an accompanying passenger age 12 or older and is no longer an Unaccompanied Minor
