Southwest Is Offering Spring Flights For Just $49 This Week
If you are going stir crazy after being stuck at home for the past year, join the club. Thankfully, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel as more and more people get vaccinated each day. So if you’re itching for a vacation, now’s the time to start thinking about where you want to go.
While flight deals aren’t nearly as good as they were during the height of the pandemic (I flew roundtrip from Los Angeles to Orlando for $72 in December!), there are still some good deals to be had. And it’s arguably safer to boot, wit the CDC updating its guidance to say that people who are fully vaccinated can travel with low risk of catching and spreading COVID-19.
Are you ready for takeoff? If so, you’ve got to check out the huge sale that Southwest Airlines currently has going on, with some seriously discounted fares for the flights through June, with one-way flights for as low as $49. Of course, you’ve still got to get back home, and that might not be quite as cheap as your outgoing flight, but it’s still one heck of a deal. And remember, that price even includes a checked bag, because that’s just how Southwest rolls!
This nationwide sale runs from now through April 8 at 11:59 pm, and as you can see on their sale page, you’re not limited in where you can travel, though prices vary depending on where you’re going. For example, you can fly from Los Angeles to San Francisco for $49, New Orleans to Ft. Lauderdale for $94, or New York to Tampa for $121.
