If you’re thinking about heading out of town this spring, you’ll want to log on to Southwest.com before going to sleep the night of Thursday, March 4.
Flights are going for as low as $29 one-way (WHAT?!) during Southwest’s April/May travel sale.
So. . . where are we going?
Southwest is selling April & May flights for as low as $29.
Southwest’s Spring Sale has slashed ticket prices at a ton of destinations, with some routes (but not as many as you’d think) as low as $29 one-way. Many of these value-priced flights are non-stop.
We’ve seen Southwest discount lower than this. The Southwest Fall Sale had deeper price cuts, but hey — airline discounts are still more than welcome. These prices are good for flights that depart between April 13 through early June.
The sale goes until 11:59 PM Central time on March 4.
The prices are only good for four days, and once you purchase the tickets, they’re nonrefundable. See all the terms and conditions.
