Manage, modify or change your Southwest Airlines flight reservation online
Why check Southwest reservations by numbers or last names? The thing is, not all customers buy them directly from the carrier. There is a solution for travel information or correct it in case of errors.
After making a purchase on the Southwest Airlines website, the information entered may be incorrect, or the passenger may see their travel plans change, so they must change their original booking information such as departure date or arrival or the destination, or the surname or first name which may be incorrectly entered.
What data is needed to verify and modify a Southwest Airlines reservation?
To clarify the information on the official company portal or on the hotline, you will need the following: reservation code and passenger’s last name. In some cases, a travel document number is also required, which you will find directly on the form or on the booking receipt. When purchased online, it is delivered to your email address along with the ticket itself.
Southwest’s online services allow you to clarify information about a flight, location, … at any time. To do this, it is enough to know the necessary data and study the instructions for verifying the information.
If travel documents have already been issued? You managed to buy tickets, but you want to clarify the nuances? Follow this procedure:
– Access the main page of the official portal
– Open the item to manage your reservation. In the form that opens, enter the PNR code (called reservation code) and your last name. It is important that the spelling is the same as when booking your plane ticket.
After entering the data and clicking “Search” , the service will provide the relevant information. You will be able to familiarize yourself with the details, get the receipt for the route again and, if necessary, return the tickets.
You will also see the booking code, travel document numbers, payment status on the monitor.
When booking with an agency?
If the purchase was made in an agency, then the information on the site will be different: in the order section, it is indicated that payment is not possible; in the “Tickets” column, you will find that they are not issued. To complete the procedure, just contact the company where the reservation was made.
