Looking to book travel between the end of April and the end of October? If so, make sure you check on your options with this most recent Southwest Airlines fare sale! It might seem like Southwest is almost always running a fare sale but sometimes you can find great options if you can be flexible or you do a little digging.

Sample Fares

  • Columbus, OH to Reagan National (DCA) – one-way starting at $49
  • Las Vegas, NV (LAS) to Chicago Midway (MDW) – one-way starting at $144
  • Turks and Caicos to Fort Lauderdale (FLL) – one-way starting at $135
  • San Juan, Puerto Rico to Baltimore/Washington – one-way starting at $177

Note: Just because the sale page suggests that the sale fare starts at a specific price, it doesn’t mean that’s as low as it gets. When looking at flights between Orlando (MCO) and Washington Dulles (IAD), the sale page suggests the starting price is $88. If you actually search using the low fare calendar, you can find fares between the two cities as low as $59.

Now, my big question…does anyone know why Rochester seems to always get left out of fare sales?
