...it's about YOU and YOUR FAMILY


Thank you for visiting the new SWAPAfamily website and welcome to the new era of strength and unity in the Southwest Airlines Pilots Association (SWAPA). I couldn’t be more proud to lead the membership as President at this time. Changes in the way we think as SWAPA members and our determination to succeed in the upcoming contract negotiations with Southwest Airlines mark an unprecedented period in SWAPA history. One of the most significant things we are introducing in this new era is our family awareness program called SWAPAfamily. Because protecting and enhancing our family’s quality of life is so important, we want you to be informed about what’s going on as well as know about all the resources that are available to you under the SWAPA umbrella. The Pilot contract affects every Southwest Pilot and every Southwest Pilot’s family from pay to benefits to retirement.

As we develop the SWAPAfamily program, there will be lots of opportunities to get to know one another and share information about what’s going on. Currently, our SWAPAfamily team is touring around our system hosting events affording members and their families the chance to interact with each other as well as SWAPA representatives. In addition, through this website and future SWAPAfamily newsletters, you will find valuable information on the many services and resources that SWAPA offers its members. The SWAPA executives, staff and committee members are hard at work every day to protect and promote our profession as Pilots.

Your participation is essential to our success. Join me in supporting SWAPAfamily by attending one of our events and staying connected with news and information brought to you here on this website and social media channels. Sign up here on our website if you would like to volunteer to help us with Outreach!
