Southwest Airlines & Windows 7 Make the Airport a One-Stop Shop for Holiday Travel

If you’re traveling on Southwest Airlines this holiday season, you’re sure to be put on the “Nice List.” Southwest and Windows have partnered to make your holiday travel experience jollier with Holiday Photos on the Fly.


Beginning Dec. 2, Southwest and Windows will offer free holiday photos to customers at 26 airports nationwide. Customers can stop by one of Santa’s workshops set up in select Southwest Airlines airports and have their photo taken with Santa or a holiday-themed backdrop. Once a photo is taken, a Windows 7 Elf will guide customers through an online experience to learn how to edit, share and store their photos with ease, thanks to Windows Live and Windows 7. Families will be able to print a copy of their photo at the airport, or visit to retrieve and share their photos online.


If you’re lucky enough to be in New York City this week, you can drop by Bryant Park and get your picture taken, experience Windows Live, play with Kinectand check out the hottest new PCs and Windows Phones – some of which aren’t even available in stores. And the gift giving doesn’t stop there. Southwest Airlines and Windows 7 are giving customers the chance to win great prizes daily. Customers can learn more about their holiday photos and how to enter the Holiday Sweepstakes at Visitors may enter the sweepstakes once every day and winners will be selected daily.

Holiday Photos on the Fly will be available in the following cities: Albuquerque, Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, El Paso, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Nashville, New Orleans, Oakland, Ontario, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, Sacramento, San Diego, San Jose, San Antonio, St. Louis, Seattle and Tampa.

Southwest Airlines and Windows 7 look forward to celebrating the holiday with customers and providing them with their holiday photo. It’s the companies’ little way of saying “thanks,” and happy holidays.
