Southwest Airlines Co.

Airline Group


Southwest Airlines Co. was established in Mar-1965, following the incorporation of Air Southwest Co. The company is considered as one of the pioneers of the low cost airline business model, and commenced service operations under the Southwest Airlines brand in 1971. The LCC operates an extensive domestic point-to-point network, and operates international services to various destinations across Latin America. Southwest Airlines Co. acquired Orlando-based AirTran Airways and, in Mar-2012, the two airlines were issued a single AOC. Southwest Airlines Co. merged both carriers under the Southwest Airlines brand in Dec-2014.

Southwest Airlines Co. is listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: LUV) and headquartered in Dallas, Texas.
