A/C Registration Font?

Tue Apr 09, 2013 6:43 am

Hello All:

I've always been kinda curious as to the name of the font, WN uses ( along with a few other airlines ) for their registrations as seen in the picture below:

It's Arial, or Helvetica, which has been bolded. They're both nice, easy-to-read fonts, and from that angle, nearly indistinguiashable without up-close scrutiny.

If Southwest did their registration templates on a Mac, though, then it's more than likely Helvetica.

There's actually no regulation as to [i]whatp/i] font must be used for a registration, just that it meets certain size requirements, and that it must be legible from a given distance.
