Southwest Airlines: Fares as Low as $40 One-Way!

Through June 23, Southwest Airlines is celebrating its 40th anniversary with fares starting as low as $40 one-way.

On flights up to 450 miles, the one-way fare will be $40. Flights 451-1250 miles will be $80 one-way and one-way flights in excess of 1251 miles will be $120.

As always, you get to check TWO free bags on Southwest and they offer their no-penalty cancellation policy. If you have to cancel up to 2 days before the scheduled flight (I believe), they will credit you with the full value of the flight to use toward a new flight booked within the year.

Travel on the Southwest Anniversary Sale flights must be booked by 6/23/2011 and must completed between 8/23/2011 and 11/16/2011.

Happy trails!

Thanks, Kim & SD.


  1. For those in Chicago who can get to a Jewel (I’m not sure if it works at other Supervalu stores), they have a $20 catalina deal when you get $100 gift card. Apparently they have Southwest gift cards so you can buy the gift cards and then use them to buy the flights and get 20% off. The timing is supposed to be short (1 week) on the catalina but you can always stock up on meat.

    • Great deal – thanks for sharing, Brian. (Btw, I got your check – thank you. I put it toward more gift cards!!!)
