Twelve flights in 13 weeks sounds like a completely reasonable amount of trips to many of our most frequent-flying Customers and Crew, but as a first-time expecting mom I found myself losing the internal willpower battle to make it through my packed few weeks on the move—all while fighting the symptoms that often come with the first signs of pregnancy. [Insert green, nausea face emoji!].

 

Fortunately, I have a great network of Coworkers at Southwest that happen to also be moms, so I began reaching out to them in confidence begging for them to bestow their wisdom on me. Read more to see what I learned.

Grab some sunscreen (and your passport!) and let’s dig into some of the exciting changes next spring.

Family travel is not for the faint of heart. Knowing the resources that are available to you at the airport—from mother’s rooms to pods to family restrooms—can help reduce some stress, so we’ve compiled family resources for every location Southwest serves.

Ah, summertime. Three things are guaranteed each summer: one, HEAT! Two, full flights. And three, Network Planning publishes the January schedule. That happened this morning, extending our schedule out through March 6, 2019. Some interesting changes to our schedule always await as we move from the holiday season schedule into the heart of winter of the new year, and this one’s no exception. Let’s discuss!

Our fourth annual Southwest Summer Camp is underway, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome over 160 campers (who are dependents of Southwest Employees) to our Headquarters this week! Additionally, we are hosting a few students from GenHERation and a few students whose nationally-recognized science experiment was sent to space. Most of these campers aren’t of legal voting age yet, but they just might be future Southwest Employees. In fact, that’s kind of the point.

Whether you’ve been the parent or the innocent bystander, you’ve probably encountered a child at some point during your airline travels. Oftentimes, traveling children can become impatient, frustrated, or confused during the travel process. The trick to traveling with children is to bring food, entertainment, and mostly luck, because let’s face it—children are unpredictable.

A better airport experience for air travelers is a priority for both Southwest Airlines and the TSA. As such, we worked with our friends at the TSA to create the following post with information that can help make your summer travel easier.

 

As many frequent travelers know, TSA Pre✓® offers expedited security screening for trusted travelers at airports nationwide. With a TSA Pre✓® Known Traveler Number documented in a reservation, Customers receive a TSA Pre✓® designation on their boarding document and enjoy all the benefits of a more efficient security check point experience. With TSA Pre✓®, Customers breeze through security lines without removing shoes, belts, laptops, liquids, and light jackets. Aside from creating a better travel experience, it also ensures a safer air travel system for our nation.
