When does Southwest cancel your flight?

Last updated on April 25, 2023

Southwest typically waits until close to the scheduled departure time to cancel flights due to a lack of expected demand. Cancellation can also occur when a flight is unable to be operated safely due to weather or other circumstances. Customers may be notified of flight cancellations as soon as possible via SMS, email or Southwest.com.
