Southwest Schedule Extended – Book for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Now!

Written by Charlie

The latest Southwest schedule extension is here and it means that tickets for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s are now available to book! Act fast to get the best prices!

Two of the most sought after schedule extensions for airlines always tend to be JetBlue and Southwest. This is because they, unlike other airlines, do not operate on a rolling schedule but open their schedules up in blocks instead.

The best schedule extension for most people with Southwest is the period from early November until early January each year. That covers a lot of holiday times and these holiday periods are always excluded from sales. This means that the best time to book those tickets is when the schedule is released.

Fortunately, Southwest operates a very generous change and cancellation policy that lets you book in points and get those points back later if you decide to cancel – no fee! The same is true with cash bookings but you get the money back as credit instead.

So, enough reading – head over to Southwest and book for travel through January 5, 2020 with this latest Southwest schedule extension!
