50 Percent Discount on Virtually ALL Flights: 50 Years of Southwest Airlines — Fall 2021

In celebration of 50 years since Southwest Airlines commenced operations on Friday, June 18, 1971, you can save 50 percent on Wanna Get Away fares, Anytime fares, Business Select fares, and reward tickets which are purchased Rapid Rewards points — either one way or round trip — for both domestic travel or international travel between Wednesday, September 15, 2021 and Wednesday, November 3, 2021 which is booked at the official Internet web sites of Southwest Airlines…

50 Percent Discount on Virtually ALL Flights: 50 Years of Southwest Airlines — Fall 2021

…but you must use promotion code SAVE50 in the Promo Code box when booking your ticket by Thursday, June 17, 2021; and the discount is only valid on new flight reservations.

The discount upon using the 50 percent promotion code is applied before government taxes and fees. While selecting your flights, discount will be visible as a strike-through of the original base fare. After selecting your flights, savings are reflected in the base fare when entering the multiuse promotion code SAVE50. Please note that the Department of Transportation of the United States requires advertised fares to include all government taxes and fees — however, this promotion code savings applies to the base fare only.

Discount will apply only for flights booked within the promotion period. If one direction of the trip is outside the promotion period and one is within the promotion period, only the portion of travel falling within the promotion period will be discounted. Changes made to the itinerary after purchase will eliminate qualifications for this promotion. The discount is only valid with the provided promotion code and cannot be combined with other promotion codes or fares. All reward travel is subject to taxes, fees, and other government or airport-imposed charges of at least $5.60 per one-way trip. Applicable taxes, fees, and other government or airport-imposed charges can vary significantly based on your arrival and departure destination. The payment of any taxes, fees, and other government or airport-imposed charges is the responsibility of the passenger and must be paid at the time reward travel is booked with a credit card, travel fund, or Southwest Airlines gift card.

Offer is not redeemable for cash, and may not be used in conjunction with other special offers, or toward the purchase of a gift card or previously-booked flight, or change to a previously-booked flight. The discount is not valid on group travel or Southwest Vacations, fares booked via Southwest Partner Services API or through global distribution systems, or special fares — such as military and government fares.

Other terms and conditions — including those of the Rapid Rewards frequent flier loyalty program — apply.


If you already have a ticket booked with Southwest Airlines and it is refundable, you can always book a new ticket at the discount fare and then cancel the old ticket once your new ticket is purchased.

Promotions like this are not offered every day — let alone once every 50 years — so take advantage of it if you have upcoming travel plans to any destination which Southwest Airlines flies…

…but you only have until Thursday, June 17, 2021 to do so — so act quickly.
