Southwest Airlines has launched their first sale of 2019, and it’s good one. Fares start at just $49, and every mainland US airport that SWA serves has at least one route on sale. Tickets must be booked by 1/24, but the best fares generally sell out before then. Travel from January through mid-May; blackout and final travel dates vary for Puerto Rico & international destinations (see below for details).
