Southwest is currently running a Fall Travel Sale through Thursday (tomorrow!) for travel from August 13 – November 14. Check out the detailed list of the fares by city here.

Flights start at $49 on Southwest.

Depending on distance theses prices apply for nonstop flights:
Flights 0-500 miles: $49
Flights 501-1300 miles: $99
Flights over 1301 miles are $139

Travel is valid every day of the week for nonstop flights except Friday or Sundays and the blackout dates are August 18, August 30, September 3 and September 4 (Labor Day holiday).

Here’s a quick example of flights from New York LGA to Baltimore/Washington BWI – it’s hard to beat a $98 roundtrip.

$49 LGA-BWI including taxes and fees.

Even if you’re not sure of your travel plans, the great thing about Southwest is, if you need to cancel, the airline doesn’t charge any change or cancellation fees, so you will just receive a Southwest credit good for future travel in the full amount.

Fare Matching

Delta is matching this sale. Here is an example of MSP-PHX which is just under 1300 miles for $99.

Even if you aren’t a Southwest flyer, some of the legacy airlines such as Delta and United are matching these fares depending on the route, but note that just like Southwest, these only apply to non-stop flights
