Southwest Airlines’ Marketing Strategy
: A 10 page case
research paper with Southwest Airlines as its focus.
Southwest is one of America’s largest airlines in terms of
passenger boardings, and yet it serves airports in a relatively
small number of 24 states. Overall, the company’s marketing
strategy is to provide the best-possible no-frills service with
the newest equipment available, then tell the flying public
about the top-notch safety record…In a report filed with the
SEC mid-way through 1996, Southwest included a list of
“what ifs” of things that might happen, things that prevented
them from forecasting performance for the very next quarter.
They just keep flying—often, right past the competition.
