A couple of weeks from now, the popular U.S. airline will start operating international flights to Mexico and the Caribbean, effectively replacing AirTran AirWays, which it acquired in 2011:
Vmonos de Viaje! Were charting new territory! On July 1st, Southwest begins operating flights to Mexico and the Caribbean.
In line with this development, the Southwest Airlines app has been updated with the ability to check in for international flights and the ability to view flight status and setup notifications for international flights.
Note that booking international flights, managing international trips, and editing passport information is currently supported only on the Southwest.com website.
The latest update to Southwest Airlines for iOS also brings the ability to add boarding time to the mobile boarding pass, which enables passengers to pass security and board aircrafts with the app. Mobile boarding passes have been available at all U.S. airports served by Southwest Airlines since the app’s update last month.
