Southwest Airlines Sale

If you’re visiting Albuquerque, or live here and want a deal on a trip away, get cheap(er) flights in the Southwest sale.

The limited time Southwest sale gives a price break on flights this fall but you have to book fast. The sale is on through June 14, 2012 for travel between August 13 and November 14, 2012, on any day except Fridays and Sundays.  Southwest Airlines is the largest carrier into Albuquerque International Sunport and the thing I like about Southwest is you can take two checked bags for free – and that includes fares in the sale.

The promo says that sale fares are charged by distance, including government taxes and fees on non-stop flights:

  • One way travel up to 500 miles is $49
  • For travel between 501 miles and 1300 miles, fares are $99
  • For travel of 1301+ miles, fares are $139

These are all for a one way fare. That means that sale fares from Albuquerque include:

  • $49 Las Vegas, Phoenix, Tucson
  • $99 Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Seattle, San Diego
  • $139 Baltimore

Fares will vary according to seat availability and not all destinations may be included. Fares are for nonstop services – they say to expect “slightly higher” fares on connecting flights due to additional taxes and fees.

Check the fares for the Southwest Airlines sale, but the basic skinny is:  

  • Book directly on by Thursday June 14, 2012, at 11:59 pm Pacific Time
  • Travel from August 13 to November 14, 2012
  • Sale fares not valid on Fridays or Sundays
  • Blackout dates are August 18 and 30, and September 3 and 4

Seats are limited and the special offer fares are likely to be snapped up quickly, so if you’re interested, check out the Southwest Airlines sale pronto.
