Discounts are 'taking off' with MyTravel: Southwest is now a preferred airline for WVU

As part of our continuing efforts to enhance the MyTravel platform and secure better rates for faculty and staff who travel on behalf of WVU, the Procurement, Contracting and Payment Services team is excited to announce Southwest Airlines is now a preferred carrier for WVU.

Through the partnership, faculty and staff who travel on behalf of the University can enjoy discounts (typically 2- 5 percent) to and from all Southwest destinations toward the following fare classes when booking through MyTravel or with a World Travel agent:

  • Business Select Fares
  • Anytime Fares
  • Select Wanna Get Away Fares

Note: The discounted rates are displayed automatically when booking through MyTravel or are available directly through a World Travel agent.

Further, faculty and staff will earn 50 percent Rapid Rewards bonus points on all Southwest flights now through April 15, 2020. This means if you earn 100 Rapid Rewards points with a regularly booked Southwest flight, you now will earn 150 points if you book your flight through MyTravel or with a World Travel agent.
