Southwest Airlines is offering its employees new incentives during the holiday season as airlines get ready to avoid operational delays during the peak travel season.
The company is offering operational employees, such as flight attendants and pilots, who work qualifying shifts between November 15 and January 14 up to 120,000 Rapid Rewards Points from its frequent flyer program, according to CNN.
In October, Southwest left more than 2,000 flights canceled over the course of four days which cost the airline $75 million.
This airline is not the only carrier to offer incentives to its workers as the holiday season is approaching. Last week, American Airlines said it was giving flight attendants who work during the holidays a one-time holiday pay premium. The increased pay comes after American Airlines canceled thousands of flights during Halloween weekend due to weather issues and staffing shortages.
