Southwest Airlines is turning 50 this week and was teasing yesterday about something being launched today that we predicted would be a fare sale.
You can save 50% on base fares by using the coupon code SAVE50 for travel in the next 50 days. You must book June 15 – 17.
Here’s our piece on the Sweepstakes:
Perhaps worth checking if other airlines match their discounted fares, as they often do, or just book on Southwest.
Here are the terms and conditions of this sale:
50 percent promotion code savings valid for one-way or round trip Wanna Get Away®, Anytime, and Business Select® fares booked on Southwest.com® or swabiz.com from June 15 through June 17, 2021 and flown between September 15 – November 3, 2021 (“Promotion Period”) and is applied before government taxes and fees. Enter promotion code SAVE50 in the Promo Code box when booking. Offer is valid for domestic and international travel. While selecting your flights, discount will be visible as a strike-through of the original base fare. After selecting your flights, savings are reflected in the base fare when entering the multiuse promotion code SAVE50 in the Promo Code box on Southwest.com and swabiz.com. Please note that the DOT requires advertised fares to include all government taxes and fees, however this promotion code savings applies to the base fare only. Discount is valid on new reservations only. Discount will apply only for flights booked within the Promotion Period. If one direction of the trip is outside the Promotion Period and one is within the Promotion Period, only the portion of travel falling within the Promotion Period will be discounted. Changes made to the itinerary after purchase will eliminate qualifications for this promotion. The discount is only valid with the provided promotion code and is not combinable with other promotion codes or fares. All reward travel is subject to taxes, fees, and other government or airport-imposed charges of at least $5.60 per one-way trip. Applicable taxes, fees, and other government or airport-imposed charges can vary significantly based on your arrival and departure destination. The payment of any taxes, fees, and other government or airport-imposed charges is the responsibility of the Passenger and must be paid at the time reward travel is booked with a credit card, travel fund, or Southwest gift card. Offer is not redeemable for cash, and may not be used in conjunction with other special offers, or toward the purchase of a gift card or previously-booked flight, or change to a previously-booked flight. Discount is not valid on Group Travel or Southwest Vacations®, fares booked via our Southwest Partner Services API or through Global Distribution Systems, or special fares, such as military and government fares.
