Below are other alternatives when considering lowest total cost or when contract exceptions apply.
Many state entities have established accounts for Southwest Airlines' SWABIZ booking tool. Although Southwest no longer provides state contract airline fares, state entities may still utilize SWABIZ when booking for lower total cost or when contract carriers are not a viable option. To obtain the fares from Southwest, go to www.swabiz.com and log in using your entity's "Company ID". Travelers should ensure procedures regarding their state agency's travel policies are followed. Contact your state agency's travel coordinator for any questions.
For those entities not enrolled in SWABIZ and need a "Company ID", go to www.swabiz.com , and enter your zip code in the field provided to contact the nearest SWABIZ representative.
