Bags Fly Free®†

Did you know... that Southwest Airlines® does not charge for your first or second checked bag? That’s right! While bag fees have become the norm amongst our competitors, we've stayed true to our reputation as the maverick of the airline industry by not charging for bags. Your skis and golf bags fly free too!

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to get going. Time to get out there and take care of business—or just have a little fun.

Take a stand against other airlines' bag fees. Book a Southwest flight today and save up to $120 round trip* when your bags fly free.

First and second checked bags. Weight and size limits apply. A golf bag can be substituted for one checked bag.

*Checked baggage fee comparison is based on Southwest = 1st and 2nd bag free vs. "The Other Guys" = 1st bag $25/one-way; 2nd bag $35/one-way; or 2 bags $60/one-way and $120/round trip. Source:
