After nearly two years of being alcohol-free, Southwest Airlines are bringing the booze back to flights.
Southwest suspended sales of alcoholic beverages on-board their flights back in March 2020 – and together with American Airlines remains one of the last major US carriers with no booze on board, CNN reports.

However, that is all set to change on February 16 when the airline will once again start offering sales of beer, wine and hard liquor on its flights of 176 miles or more – and for tea-total passengers, Southwest will also be expanding its non-alcoholic beverage service to include Coke Zero, tonic water and hot chocolate.
“Customers have expressed a desire for more beverage options, so we’re delighted to restore additional on-board offerings as a part of the Southwest hospitality that our customers know and love,” said Tony Roach, vice president of Southwest customer experience and customer relations, in a press release reported by CNN.
According to SFGate, any free drink coupons provided by Southwest that were set to expire in 2020 can be redeemed by the end of 2022.
