Southwest Airlines partners with Windows 7

Nov 23, 2010

DALLAS - If you're traveling on Southwest Airlines this holiday season, you're sure to be put on the "Nice List!" Southwest and Microsoft Windows 7 have partnered to make your holiday travel experience jollier with Holiday Photos on the Fly.

Beginning Dec. 2, Southwest Airlines and Windows will offer free holiday photos to Customers at 26 airports nationwide. Customers can stop by one of Santa's workshops in select Southwest Airlines airports to have their photo taken with Santa or in a holiday-themed backdrop. Once a photo is taken, a Windows 7 Elf will guide Customers through an online experience 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.

"Southwest Airlines is excited to be partnering with Microsoft to bring such a unique program to our Customers this holiday season," said Andy Allmann, Southwest's Director of Promotions and Sports Marketing. "Our Employees love to celebrate the holidays, and we feel this program will make our Customers' travel experience an even more positive one."

And the gift giving doesn't stop there! Southwest Airlines and Windows 7 are giving Customers the chance to win great prizes daily. Learn more about your holiday photos and how to enter the Holiday Sweepstakes at Visitors may enter the sweepstakes once every day and winners will be selected daily.

"By taking the hassle out of getting your holidays photos taken, Windows and Southwest are making the holidays easier for traveling families," said Lisa Sikora, Windows Senior Marketing Manager in charge of the program. "We're celebrating the simple things that make this time of year special: spending time with family, connecting with friends, and sharing good cheer."
