Now that We've Celebrated: It's YOUR Turn!

Adventurer C

At Southwest Airlines, we celebrated our 40th birthday in style last week! Now, we are excited to announce we are sharing the LUV with you—our Customers. Today, we are launching a 72-hour sale with fares as low as $40 one-way! It’s our way of saying thank you for keeping us in business for 40 years.

For 72-hours only, you can purchase one-way tickets for $40, $80, or $120 based on length of travel (additional taxes, fees, and exclusions apply). For travel up to 450 miles, fares are $40 one-way. For travel between 451 and 1250 miles, fares are $80 one-way. For travel more than 1251 miles, fares are $120 one-way. These super low fares are available for purchase through 11:59 p.m. PDT June 23, 2011, for travel beginning Aug. 23, 2011, through Nov. 16, 2011.
