DALLAS (April 5, 2013)—Gary Kelly, the CEO of Southwest Airlines, received $4 million in compensation for 2012, up 15 percent from 2011, largely because of bigger stock awards.

Most of Kelly's compensation is in stock awards, worth $2.25 million, according to the filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission
