Young Traveler Pickup

New Arrival

I'm considering sending my son out to visit his adult sister this summer. Can an adult sibling (22) pick up a 13 year old Young Traveler upon arrival, and conversely send the Young Traveler back? I can't seem to find that answer on the Southwest site.

Hopefully you were able to complete the travel ok.  Young Travelers are not monitored by Southwest and walk from the gate to baggage claim/passenger pickup alone so any family/friend can pick them up.  Obtaining an escort pass to walk them to the gate for departure should be ok as the 22 year old is an adult escorting a minor.
