Southwest Airlines Offers New Three-Day Sale

On Tuesday, Southwest Airlines revealed a new sale that features many of the company’s shortest routes at discounted prices, including many fares for $100 or less.

According to the official website of Southwest, the airline is offering plenty of great deals, but there are several caveats to the ticket prices. Most domestic fares on sale will only be valid on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, and trips to Florida and Nevada are only valid on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Fares to Puerto Rico are only valid on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

For international flights, the sale prices only apply to Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

The restrictions are a noticeable change from versions of similar sales in the past, as the only days previously excluded were Fridays and Sundays. In addition, the current Southwest sale also does not include several popular routes normally advertised in the sales.

The Southwest sale applies to travel between Aug. 23 and Dec. 14 with certain holidays considered black-out dates, and the sale runs through Thursday, June 9. The discounts have proven to be big business for the airline, but the most decent three-day sale has more caveats than the previous versions.

With prices tiered at $49, $99, $129 and $149 each way, travelers will still have the opportunity to save big if willing to meet all the criteria needed before the sale is applied to the fare piece.
