Written by Charlie

Celebrate your favorite events coming up with a sale on Southwest flights. This includes an extension on inter-island flights in Hawaii if you really want to take in the sunshine!

Gotta love how Southwest markets their weekly sales. In case you forget about a certain holiday or scenic part of the country to check out, Southwest will help you out with that!

Southwest Launches Their “Sale-ebrate” Sale

Link: Southwest Sale

This week, it is all about the reasons to celebrate as schools prepare for graduation this month and next month. If you want to go something special to celebrate or possibly go see a friend or family member graduate, maybe these sale prices can help!

Southwest Sale Details:

  • Purchase from May 7 through May 9, 2019, 11:59 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time.
  • Continental U.S. travel valid August 20 through October 30, 2019.
    • Interisland Hawaii travel valid May 28 through November 2, 2019.
    • Travel to/from San Juan, Puerto Rico valid September 4 through October 31, 2019.
    • International travel valid August 20 through October 31, 2019.
  • Continental U.S. travel blacked out August 30, and September 2, 2019.

You may notice there is the travel validity dates that leave out June 13 – August 19 and then actual blacked out dates. Those dates between June 13 – August 19 actually do still have sale fares for some of the city pairs so make sure you check summer dates as well!

One different thing this week is the extended Hawaii inter-island flights. Now, they run through November 2 – a whole month extension from last week’s sale. They match Hawaiian Air’s prices for inter-island flights but you get the same free luggage and change rules that Southwest has for the rest of their network. Plus, there is nothing quite like redeeming just 2,800 points for a one-way award ticket in beautiful Hawaii!
