Southwest Airlines is turning 52 this weekend, and the carrier is celebrating by offering a huge fare sale and daily prize giveaways.
To start, the airline is giving travelers the chance to save a whopping 40 percent off base fares if they book by 11:59 p.m. PT on June 15, Southwest shared with Travel + Leisure. The sale applies to trips between Aug. 15 and Dec. 14. (It excludes blackout dates from Nov. 16 through Nov. 27.) To book, travelers must use the promo code “40OFF.”
Southwest's destinations include international getaways like Aruba; Belize; Cancun, Mexico; Havana, Cuba; Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; and Turks and Caicos. (A September trip from New York City to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, for example, is as low as $335 round trip.) Travelers can also opt for popular U.S. cities serviced by the carrier like Austin, Nashville, Denver, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. (An October trip from Los Angeles to Nashville is as low as $99 each way.)
In addition to the sale, Southwest Airlines is giving away prizes each day leading up to its official birthday on June 18, which the airline has dubbed “Wanna Get Away Day.” Travelers can snag everything from round-trip air travel for two to a Companion Pass.
