Southwest Will Tap the Brakes on Capacity Expansion to Consolidate Its Newly Expanded Network

Business Strategy and Outlook

Southwest is a leisure-focused, low-cost airline and the largest domestic carrier in the U.S. by passenger volume. Southwest has stuck to its strategy of streamlining airline operations to maintain lower unit costs than its full service rivals, which it passes on to customers in the form of cheaper tickets and a low-frills experience.
