Southwest Airlines has announced that customers traveling to Hawaii from five of its California departure points are now able to get clearance to enter Hawaii before they depart for the islands. With document screening lines at the various Hawaiian airports often resembling lines for rides at a pre-pandemic theme park, this is good news for Southwest Airlines flyers.
Southwest has launched a flash sale in which it's offering fares from an amazing $29 one-way. The sale only runs through 4 March and as usual, there are a lot of terms and conditions to navigate (e.g. you can only travel on select days of the week if you want to book the best fares), but a quick look at some of the deals on offer shows that there's definitely value to be had here.
On Friday, I wrote about the great new flight options that Southwest will be giving the residents of Southern California when it launches 7 new routes out of Long Beach at the beginning of March. Today I'm quickly going to go over the details of five more new routes that Southwest will be launching out of California in April.
Southwest is an airline that has managed to cultivate a friendly, non-confrontational culture, it's an airline that doesn't gouge passengers with fees, and it's an airline that frequently offers fantastic fares on a number of very popular routes. All of those things are why I'm excited to see the airline putting a considerable amount of focus on expanding its offering in California, my home state.
In news that was entirely expected, Southwest has announced that it's following in the footsteps of Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta, and United Airlines by banning emotional support animals from its flights.

Southwest is running a flash sale (which I've only just noticed) in which it's offering one-way fares from $39. A quick look at some of the sample fares the airline has provided shows that there may be some good deals available for travel to Hawaii and possibly to a few other winter sun destinations.
A couple of days ago, Southwest launched what must be one of the most rewarding promotions of the year when it started offering a limited-time Companion Pass to Southwest Rapid Rewards members who book a flight by 24 September and then travel by 15 November 2020. 24 September is TODAY so there are just hours left to get in on this fantastic deal.
Southwest is currently running a flash sale which ends tomorrow and when you consider that the airline doesn't charge checked bag fees some of the fares on offer appear to offer very good value.
statement credit when the way they were processed by AA/Amex was changed. Last month there was a suggestion that this situation had been reversed but that turned out to be a glitch and, as far as I know, American Airlines gift cards continue not to trigger the Amex statement credits. Now we may be facing a similar issue with Delta and Southwest gift card purchases.
