Southwest Airlines just announced a new sale with fares as low as $49 one-way just in time for spring. As flying slowly resumes, encouraged by vaccination efforts, the airline is slashing prices to offer passengers the vacation they’ve been dreaming of all winter.
The routes offered in the sale cover domestic US flights as well as select routes in Mexico. You can snag a $49 ticket for flights such as Chicago to Nashville or Phoenix to Long Beach. International trips have also been discounted; a flight from Dallas to Cozumel, Mexico, for example, will set you back around $169 one way. All purchased tickets come without cancel or change fees to give passengers extra flexibility.
Additionally, Southwest is cutting the rates for reward redemption for the duration of the sale. Members of the Southwest Rapid Rewards Program can save an additional 20 percent by using the promo code “SAVENOW” when selecting award flights. The Rapid Rewards Program allows travelers to earn points with every flight, which can then be redeemed for flight credit and seat upgrades.
The offer will last until March 29, so hurry up. The special offer prices apply to flights between April 14 and June 30, with some dates unavailable around Memorial Day. The additional rapid rewards discount applies to travel between now and April 30.
