Spring 2021 Southwest Sale: How to Get Cheap Flights for $ 49 in April

Travel is slowly becoming a reality again now that the CDC has updated its guidelines to say that fully vaccinated people can travel with low risk of catching and spreading COVID-19. This means that, if you feel comfortable cramming into an airplane again, you may be able to profit from Southwest’s scheduled flight sales again. The economy carrier just launched a big Tuesday.

From now until April 8 at 11:59 p.m., Southwest is offering a nationwide sales with discounted one-way flights to destinations across the country. You can get inexpensive fares – to major cities like Nashville, Kansas City, Charlotte, and New Orleans – to travel between April 20 and June 30, 2021. However, May 27, May 28, and May 31, 2021 are all blacked out, so a super-cheap Memorial Day trip is out of the question.
