Southwest Sale – Great For Fall Travel

Southwest sale
Written by Charlie

Southwest has recently launched what is pretty much a monthly sale. However, they are always nice to have because the sale range is extended each time. This sale is for fall travel which is great for those vacations or the host of marathons and races that will take place in September and October.

Southwest Sale – Great for Fall Travel

The cheapest rate is $63 for travel between Akron/Canton and Washington, DC (Reagan National). The point amount is 3,086. The dollar amount is $4 higher than it was during the last fare sale with the sale requiring 160 additional points for one way travel on that route.

With travel being so cheap to the Washington, DC area, this fare sale is a great way to get to the Baltimore Marathon (October 17) or the Marine Corps Marathon (October 25). In addition, another hub airport of Southwest is Chicago’s Midway airport and this sale coincides with the Chicago Marathon’s October 11th race date.
