Southwest normally releases their fare sales on Tuesdays but this sale just went live today. If you have travel in mind for Labor Day, this is exactly the sale you need.
Southwest Labor Day Sale Live
Most airline prices tend to go up around holiday weekends. To have Southwest run a sale for one of the busier travel weekends (Labor Day) is a nice touch to round out your summer. Fares are available as low as $49 (or 2,273 points) one way – even though the landing page says that fares are as low as $73. Granted, the cheapest of fares are for more of the short haul flights, but to have $49 tickets is always nice!
There are a few exceptions for cities served during this sale (not nice that they put my hometown of Rochester on the list!). Here they are:
- Panama City Beach
- Norfolk/Virginia Beach
- West Palm Beach
- Portland, ME
- San Juan, PR
The dates of this sale for travel are September 5-6 and 8. That lines up perfectly with your weekend travel and gives you an inexpensive air option for that holiday weekend.
