Southwest Airlines Is Offering Low Fares For Fall Travel-Here's How To Get In On The Sales
Nowadays, airfares have no mercy on our wallets, but Southwest Airlines announced that they will be offering fares as low as $59 one-way this fall.
This is welcome news as travelers and those working in the travel industry navigate the “summer of hell.” Staff shortages, longer lines at security and customs, lost baggage and scores of canceled flights. And let’s not forget an ongoing pandemic and the expensive tickets as airlines, like other businesses, try to recoup lost revenue.
The days of smooth travel seem to be a thing of the past, so we can only do our best.
How can you get in on the sale?
According to Travel + Leisure, “the new sale must be booked by 11:59 p.m. CT on July 21. It applies to fares throughout the country and even Mexico and the Caribbean. The sale is valid on travel later this year on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from Aug. 16 through Nov. 16 and then again from Nov. 29 through Dec. 14.”
Earlier this year, Southwest Airlines debuted new fare classes called Wanna Get Away and Wanna Get Away Plus. Travel + Leisure notes that these “offer travelers more flexibility when booking and allow them to gift unused flight credits.” Under this new sale, Wanna Get Away travelers can go to numerous destinations for as low as $59 one way. Wanna Get Away Plus travelers can access fares starting at $89 each way.
So if you’ve ever wanted to jet to Nashville from Atlanta, or Chicago to Columbus, Ohio, you can do so for $59. If you want to fly to or from Las Vegas to San Diego, you can enjoy an even better bargain with $39 fares one-way.
If you want to get out of the country, consider a Southwest flight to the Cayman Islands from Atlanta starting at $124 one-way. You can also escape to The Bahamas from Fort Lauderdale starting at $90 one- way. And that’s just a few examples.
Please note that fares are non-refundable, but they can be put towards future Southwest travel if need be.
