Great Southwest Sale for Travel Through October 1 From $44

Written by Charlie

This is the first Southwest sale of 2019 to have dates available up to October! This means you can lock in a lot of travel now at sale prices starting from just $44 one way.

This is a great Southwest sale for one key reason – it is bookable through October 1 (with blackouts for summer months). With prices starting at $44 for one way travel, this is a great time to check out the deals available and to start booking travel for most of 2019!

Yes, you will notice a large hole in the validity dates of June 13 through August 19. However, I did some random searching of city pairs and found that those dates still have low ticket prices similar to the other dates. So, make sure you check around if you need July and August!
