Calling to all Americans looking for excellent deals: Southwest Airlines have announced a 40% off qualifying base fares for all late-summer and fall travel.
However, customers must take advantage of this deal by June 9, 2022, at 11.59 p.m Central Daylight Time.
The deal started on June 7, 2022; therefore, Americans only have today and tomorrow to take advantage of the promotion.
The Full Details On The Offer
All customers can save 40% on qualifying base fares if they use the promotion FALL40 when purchasing via Southwest.com. The deal is valid on all flights running from August 16, to November 5, 2022. All discounts are applied before government taxes and fees.
Bill Tierney, Southwest Airlines Vice President of Marketing & Digital Experience, said: “We’re thrilled to offer our customers a substantial discount on our low fares for flights as soon as late summer and into the fall,”
He added: “This discount on Southwest flights will help make travel more affordable and easier for Customers—giving them a great low fare along with two free checked bags, and no change or cancellation fees2. All of that coupled with our legendary Hospitality adds up to a great deal.”
The Promotion Rules
Of course, as with all promotions, there are some rules to consider.
The 40% promotion code savings is valid for one-way or round trip Wanna Get Away®, Wanna Get Away Plus, Anytime, and Business Select® fares booked on Southwest.com.
- You must book the flights between June 7, through June 9, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. Central Daylight Time.
- You must fly between Aug. 16, through Nov. 5, 2022.
- You’ll have to enter the promotion code FALL40 in the Promo Code box when booking your flight.
- The discount may vary depending on the flight, the day of the week, and the destination
- On busy flights during holiday periods, the discount won’t be available
- If you change your itinerary after you purchase your tickets, it will eliminate the promotion.

What About Flexibility Terms?
At Southwest Airlines, there are no change fees, but fare differences may apply. There are no cancellation fees, but failure to cancel a reservation at least 10 minutes before departure could cause forfeited travel funds.
What About WiFi Terms?
WiFi may be available for passengers, but only on WiFi-enabled aircraft. Although Southwest Airlines offers an inflight entertainment portal, they only allow access to iMessage and WhatsApp, and travelers must download this before the flight.
In addition, free live TV and iHeartRadio may not be available for the entire flight duration due to licensing laws.
How Significant Is This Offer For Travelers?
Due to the rising demand for flights and the fuel crisis, flight prices are skyrocketing in the United States.
Delta CEO, Ed Bastian, recently said: “We expect pricing this summer to be up probably somewhere between 25% and 30% on average,”
He added: “We’ve never seen anything of that scale.”
This offer shows excellent deals are still possible for U.S. travelers this year; you just have to take advantage of the offers when they become available.
However, Helane Becker, Senior Research Analyst at Cowen, told Bloomberg TV: “They (airlines) are facing huge inflationary pressures and need to raise ticket prices and at some point, the consumer is going to say ‘okay, we’ve done our travel, and we’re done, we cannot (afford) to fly again,”
If you like the sound of this offer, don’t hesitate to book it.
It’s only available for another two days.
