Southwest Airlines has announced a flash sale with one-way fares for as low as $45. Travelers will be able to book national flights to top destinations across the US including Hawaii and Puerto Rico and also international destinations—from August 16 through November 5— for very low prices.
But here’s the catch: travelers must act fast! Sale fares for August through November travel will be available for a very short period of time: until Thursday 26 at 11:59 pm central time. Those who already want to travel during that period of time or are interested in learning more about their travel opportunities must book fast through the official website.
The carrier’s promotion includes tickets for the new fare class—which provides more benefits for travelers— and one-way tickets for this class start at $89.
Fares vary depending on the cities of origin and destination, and might also change depending on the day. Travelers must double-check dates—some destinations have very restricted schedules—, fares —that might change depending on availability—, and city connections before purchasing since tickets are nonrefundable and seats and travel dates are limited.
Customers must also bear in mind that some terms and conditions apply. The sale is not valid through Labor Day weekend, blacked-out dates are September 1, 2, and 5 of the current year. More details are available on Southwest’s website.
