Southwest Airlines Pilots: Leaders in the Aviation Industry

Southwest Airlines Pilots' Association (SWAPA) is the sole bargaining unit for the more than 8,000 pilots of Southwest Airlines. Southwest pilots are leaders in aviation industry productivity and are the world's leading experts on flying the Boeing-737.  Southwest Airlines operates a growing fleet of the 737-300, 737-500, 737-700 and 737-800.

SWAPA is in its 37th year of service to the pilots of Southwest Airlines. Prior to the union's beginnings in 1978, pilots worked cooperatively with the Company to compile work rules for safe, efficient operations. That cooperative spirit has continued through the negotiation of eight labor contracts.

Mission Statement

"Continue to provide a secure and rewarding career for our pilots and their families by enhancing compensation and quality of life issues through enlightened and strategic negotiations, faithfully defending individual and collective contractual rights via administration and enforcement procedures, actively promoting professionalism, safety and security through proactive involvement, and effectively communicating messages to all audiences and by all means."
