Southwest Passbook

The official Southwest Airlines app was updated today with Passbook support, allowing passenger to store their mobile boarding passes for quick and easy access when needed during security screening and boarding at the gate.

Those mobile boarding passes can be downloaded directly from the Southwest Airlines app, or any official email or text message containing boarding information sent by the airline.

And with Location Services enabled, once the mobile boarding pass has been added to Passbook, it will automatically appear on passengers’ Lock screens when they are in the airport terminal, providing a paperless experience, but also one that will definitely streamline the overall process.

The Southwest Airlines app is free in the App Store.

Thanks Matthew for the tip!

  • This is so much better than the process before. The Southwest app is constantly prone to crashes on my 6, so now I won’t have to deal with that.
