Southwest is running a flash sale (which appears to have started yesterday) in which it’s offering one-way fares from $39. A quick look at some of the fares the airline has published shows that there may be some good deals available for travel to Hawaii and possibly to a few other winter sun destinations.

Bottom Line

The most tempting fares that I’ve seen (so far) are for travel between the West Coast and Hawaii ($99 one way is a great deal) but there are a few other good deals too.

It’s worth noting that Alaska Airlines is also running a sale right now (see here) so if you’re struggling to find a good fare with Southwest, that may be another way to go.

As usual, this Southwest sale comes with more terms than an Apple Music account so make sure you take a look through the restrictions before you start making plans.

The best way to find the lowest fares is to use Southwest’s Low Fare Calendar which should quickly show you if your preferred routes have any great deals on offer. If you’re able to be flexible with your dates, you should be able to find something that works for you.

  1. Thanks for tip about the Southwest Fare Sale. A lower fare was available on a flight to Miami I had booked for October. I called and got $188 in Travel Funds for a future trip! Sweet!
