Southwest Airlines Unveils 72-Hour Sale Offering Flights Starting At Just $49

(CBSDFW) Feeling a bit of wanderlust, or just been looking to plan a getaway? Well, Southwest Airlines may give a final nudge to those teetering on the fence for taking a trip. Tuesday morning they started a sale for flights between August 22 through December 13, and the flights are as low as $49 for their shortest routes.

Flights that are under 500 miles start at $49 and go up from there, generally related to the distance of the flights. International options are included as well but those are more limited. For instance, the sale is valid for international flights on just Tuesdays or Wednesdays.

The sale excludes Fridays, Sundays, Labor Day and Thanksgiving. But you’ve got to move quick as these low rates end on June 8th. This fire sale isn’t abnormal from Southwest. In prior years, they’ve had similar three-day sales in both June and October.

On the sale, one can fly from Los Angeles to Cancun for $124 each way. One could also fly from New York to Orlando for $72 each way or Dallas to Los Vegas for $99 each way.
