How does the Southwest Companion Pass work?
The Southwest Companion Pass is a pass that allows a Rapid Rewards member to add a second person (Companion) free of charge to any flight that they book with Southwest, as long as there is another seat available for purchase. The member only needs to pay the taxes and fees for the Companion.
How do I book a companion pass on Southwest?
To qualify for the pass, you need to earn 125,000 Companion Pass qualifying points or fly 100 one-way flights per calendar year on Southwest Airlines, which must be earned and posted to your Rapid Rewards account. The 125,000 qualifying-point requirement is new for 2020.
Can I use my companion pass on Southwest Vacations?
The companion pass is eligible for use with paid and award travel on both domestic and international Southwest Airlines itineraries. Before you can bring a friend or loved one, you must designate them as your companion.
Can I add companion pass to existing reservation?
As a Companion Pass holder, you can reserve a seat for your designated companion so long as you’re also ticketed on the same flight. It’s valid on new and existing reservations, including flights you booked prior to earning Companion Pass status.
