  • Southwest Airlines

    Southwest Airlines typically referred to as Southwest, is an airline based in the United States and one of the known and world's largest low-cost carrier. The airline is headquartered in Dallas, Texas, and has scheduled service to approximately 121 destinations in the United States and 10 additional countries. Survey shows that Southwest carried more domestic passengers than any other United States airline.

    The airline came into existence on March 9, 1967 by Herb Kelleher and Rollin King as Air Southwest Co. and adopted the ongoing name, Southwest Airlines Co., in 1971, when it began operating as an intrastate airline wholly within the state of Texas, first flying between Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. Furthermore, the airline also began regional interstate service in 1979, expanding nationwide in the following decades. Southwest currently serves airports in 42 states and multiple Central American destinations.

    Southwest follows a totally distinctive model of operations as compared to other US airlines as it uses a rolling hub and point-to-point network and allows free checked baggage. It exclusively uses Boeing 737 jets in its fleet. If seen historically, this commercial jetliner had in its fleet Boeing 737 jetliners, apart from Boeing 727-200s. Southwest is also the largest operator of the Boeing 737 worldwide. Using a single basic aircraft type allows Southwest pilots and flight attendants to crew any aircraft in the fleet without restrictions.
