Southwest Airlines reaches three million Facebook fans

Southwest Airlines reaches three million Facebook fans

The LUV airline is easy to LIKE!  Southwest Airlines is celebrating the Three Million Fan milestone with a special discount offer and a signature “concept” plane dedicated to our fans! Southwest Airlines was the first airline to reach a million Facebook Fans back in 2010, and now is the first airline worldwide to amass three million Facebook Fans!

And while there are a million ways to celebrate, we’ve decided to offer our fans a special discount available today only!  Fans can get 50 percent off a roundtrip Wanna Get Away Fare simply by using the promotion code: LUV2LIKE.  This promotion code is good through Aug. 3, 2012, 11:59 p.m. PDT and is available for travel 9/5, 9/11, 9/18, 9/25, 10/2, 10/31, and 11/6/12 (seats limited, and some exclusions may apply). Customers can learn all the details and use the promo code only at http://www.southwest.com/html/promotions/fs-3million-likes.html.

We’ve also had a little FUN in creating a rendering of our own “concept” Facebook aircraft paint scheme.  We thought our Facebook Fans would particularly “like” to fly on Southwest’s Facebook One.  The artwork for Facebook One can be found at www.blogsouthwest.com.

“For more than five years, we’ve been actively involved in social media as a way to join the conversation with our Customers,” says Linda Rutherford, Southwest Airlines Vice President of Communication and Strategic Outreach.  “We are interacting with our Customers and Fans every day and appreciate and celebrate this milestone with them.  Here’s to reaching ten million Fans someday!”
