Southwest Schedule Extension & Fare Sale
Southwest has opened their schedule up for bookings through October 30, 2015. Since Southwest generally opens up their schedule every few months, this will probably be the last extension before the upcoming devaluation.
The company is also launching a number of new routes which are now bookable because of this extension. Until 2/22 the following new routes are on sale:
- Columbus and Boston Logan with one-way travel as low as $69
- Columbus and Oakland (San Francisco Bay Area) with one-way travel as low as $139
- Santa Ana/Orange County and Portland, Ore. with one-way travel as low as $99
- Washington, D.C. (Reagan National) and Fort Lauderdale (Miami Area) with one-way travel as low as $94
You can find out more info in about the new routes and the sale terms in the company’s press release.
Hopefully we will see one more schedule extension before the April 17, 2015 mystery devaluation, but I wouldn’t count on it.
As I wrote last week, I expect the changes to be substantial. Hopefully Southwest will announce the details soon, but in the mean time you may want to scout where and how to spend your points.
