Have Apple Pay, will travel.
Southwest is the latest airline to accept Apple Pay payments for tickets via the Southwest app, reports Simple Flying. Last year, Southwest announced that they now accept Apple Pay for inflight WiFi purchases.
If you are committed to buying tickets through your desktop or laptop, Apple Pay accessibility is not ready for you yet. But this might be the next logical step in Southwest’s Apple Pay game plan.
The update makes it easier for Apple cardholders to earn 2% cash back on their travel plans. Plus, bargain hunters can snag a last-minute deal even quicker by having their top travel credit cards all in one spot.
The Best Travel Credit Cards to Load into Apple Pay
The Apple Card isn’t a horrible choice when it comes to paying for flights, but it isn’t the best travel credit card option either. These cards are worth looking into if you want to get the most travel perks.
1. Southwest Rapid Rewards® Plus Credit Card
2. Southwest Rapid Rewards® Premier Credit Card
