Kayak for Business, the free corporate travel solution from consumer travel search engine Kayak, has announced the integration of Southwest Airlines into its booking platform.
The integration enables travelers and travel decision-makers to compare all available travel options in one place, making Kayak for Business a one-stop booking solution for small and medium-sized businesses.
Kayak for Business says its solution makes the process of booking a business trip for Southwest business customers easier, with access to the airline’s fares including applicable discounts.
Through the interface, users can now also add EarlyBird, allowing customers to be checked in for their flights automatically 36 hours prior to departure. It also earning Southwest Rapid Rewards points easier, and gives customers the ability to book travel using Rapid Rewards points where applicable.
Kayak for Business launched in July 2021 currently has more than 10,000 small- and medium-sized businesses signed up. The company has also announced two new features for users: the ability to cancel and change trips as well as pay for upcoming trips with unused tickets or travel credits.
With Southwest joining the platform, Jonathan Fitzsimons, head of business development at Kayak for Business, said, “Business travelers and travel decision-makers alike now have access to more travel options than ever before.”
Business travelers want to see all their options in one place, Fitzsimons added, “something that has been missing from other corporate travel solutions – and one that Kayak for Business can deliver.”
