At Southwest Airlines, it’s always been about Heart. It’s about Loving People and putting others first. t’s about Building Resilience through connections that last and being part of a community that helps one another because distance shouldn’t keep us from being neighbors. It’s about Living Responsibly and doing things the Southwest Way, which means we do it because we want to, not because we have to.

Born and raised in Irvine, California, a town appropriately nicknamed “The Bubble,” I always desired to grow and “find myself” in a big city that encouraged creativity, self-expression, and passion. The eventaully lead me to Dallas and the Southwest Airlines Campus Reach Internship Program as a Operations Strategy Intern in Customer Support & Service. The diversity of people, thought, and experience that I have had the privilege of interacting with these past few weeks has made this internship that much more special.

Hi! My name is Otto, and I am a nine month old yellow lab. Through Southwest Airline's partnership with Canine Companions for Independence, I’ve been living in Texas and coming to work with my ‘foster dad’ Cory for a little over six months now

 

Southwest partners with Canine Companions for Independence to allow service dogs in training to fly as if they are already fully-trained service animals.  This partnership allows Canine Companions’ puppy raisers to train their dogs on socialization and familiarization with the airport, and it helps Southwest Employees develop into experts when it comes to delivering Hospitality to Passengers who require a service animal.

Southwest Airlines is committed to the diverse communities we serve.  We believe that everyone in our community is part of our family, and as a family, we love to celebrate each other.

Last year we had a Napkin Art Contest in which we asked our Customers to draw something that inspires them. Artist, Shawn Perkins drew five different designs of people he felt inspired him to be the person he is today. As they say, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” So in honor of Black History Month, we’ve decided to let Shawn’s pictures do the talking.

Yesterday, January 30, Southwest filed an answer with DOT following up on our application for additional slots to increase our service to Mexico City (MEX).  Today, U.S. low-cost carriers (LCCs) have virtually no access to Mexico City International Airport, the largest airport in Mexico, where Mexican LCCs have nearly 100 times as many flights.  We believe newly available Mexico City slots should be granted to U.S. LCCs as a first priority due to this disparity.  Southwest has consistently taken this position before the DOT for almost two years, dating back to the previous administration. Our filing has nothing to do with politics and has everything to do with a desire to serve more people in the United States and Mexico.

 

Our goal is to increase our service to Mexico and provide more flights to Mexico City than we do today. We’re all about connecting people to what’s important in their lives, and we see MEX playing a big role in doing just that.

Southwest Airlines has always stood for People.  In four decades of taking Customers from one destination to the next, we’ve discovered our Purpose: to connect People to what’s important in their lives through friendly, reliable, and low-cost air travel.  By serving Customers and fostering those connections, we’ve seen the communities we serve flourish.  It has become apparent that, in the air and on the ground, community is more than a place—it’s the heart of what brings us together. At Southwest, we’re known for our Heart, and our Heart has many facets.

Reflecting back on a semester full of LUV!Reflecting back on a semester full of LUV!

It's no surprise then that from the moment I heard about the Campus Reach internship, I was intrigued. Hands on experience, a great work environment, and flight benefits, who would pass that up? Apparently nobody. In applying I discovered that Southwest receives upwards of 15,000 applications every cycle (spring, summer, and fall) for roughly 100 positions. With an acceptance rate of less than 1 percent many websites touted that the internship is "harder than Harvard." But I was determined.
