If you follow me often, you probably already know that Southwest is by far my favorite airline. I am able to secure the companion pass every year allowing someone in my family to fly with me for free, I can book and cancel tickets without fees, if a fare goes down in price I get my points back into my account, and I am easily able to sit with my family with no problems at all.
Like most millennials, I do a lot of “work” on my phone. And a lot of my work involves booking flights! One thing that has always annoyed me is that Southwest would not allow you to search or book international flights via the app or on their mobile site – their technology just didn’t support it. It would always force you to go to their full website site which isn’t too user friendly on a phone. Yes, you could search and book flights this way, but you need skinny fingers to select the exact fields and buttons to complete your purchase and it just got annoying.
Well, it looks like the Southwest technology has finally come through and you can now book international flights using any method you’d like. The app and mobile site now supports all flight searches and reservations! If you are an avid Southwest traveler, this will definitely make booking international flights much easier! It definitely will help with my Southwest flight addiction as well!
