Southwest.com/vamonos Is The New Option To Book Travel In Espanol





DALLAS, Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE:LUV) today introduced southwest.com/vamonos, a translated, Spanish version of southwest.com. Southwest.com/Vamonos was specifically designed to provide Southwest's Spanish-speaking Customers the best online experience in the language of their choice.  

"At Southwest Airlines, we tailor our products to be relevant to our Customers.  With our new international service provided by AirTran Airways, and the imminent growth of our airline, we knew translating southwest.com into Spanish was the smartest way to enhance our website," said Kevin Krone, Vice President of Marketing, Sales, and Distribution for Southwest Airlines.  "This enhancement will provide Customers who prefer Spanish the same level of Customer Service provided by our regular website."

Southwest.com/vamonos is not just a landing page; it's a translated option for Customers who prefer to make all their travel bookings in Spanish.  Southwest.com, the most visited airline website in the world, partnered with MotionPoint to manage the Spanish version of the site.  MotionPoint, a South Florida-based company supports the business goals of many Fortune 500 Companies by translating, localizing and optimizing their websites for new markets.  Additionally, Southwest also provides live bilingual Customer Service assistance through the 1-800-Vamonos number, available 365 days a year.

"At MotionPoint, we pride ourselves on our ability to deliver meaningful business results for the best companies on the planet and Southwest Airlines is certainly on that list," said Chuck Whiteman, Senior Vice President of Client Services for MotionPoint.  To read more about this new service, visit: blogsouthwest.com
