Southwest Airlines has announced they’ll be discontinuing service onboard all their flights effective Wednesday, March 25, 2020. This follows their earlier announcement last week on them removing service on flights under 250 miles.

The airline is doing all it can to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and they feel it’s safest for both their flight attendants and passengers to take this measure. While other US airlines have done away with glassware in premium cabins and made modifications to drink/snack service, this is the first airline to officially discontinue any type of inflight service.

Southwest Airlines shared the following:

The well-being of Customers and Employees is the uncompromising priority onboard every Southwest flight. Therefore, in accordance with health officials’ recommendations to limit close public interactions during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Southwest is temporarily suspending our on-board beverage and snack service from Wednesday, March 25, 2020 until further notice. During this time, unopened cans of water will be available upon Customer request.

Our desire to continue providing Southwest Hospitality is as strong as ever, and the entire Southwest Team truly appreciates our Customers’ understanding of the difficult decisions we must make during these unprecedented times.
