Southwest Launches Birthday Fare Sale

Southwest Airlines is celebrating its 39th birthday with a sale that includes $39 one-way fares. But you have to act fast – the sale prices go away midnight Thursday.

The discount carrier said the low fares are a "gift" to customers in honor of its birthday.

During the sale period one-way fares for travel up to 450 miles are $39. For trips of 451 to 1,000 miles, one-way fares are $79. Longer routes are $119 each way.

The fares are good for travel September 8 to November 17.

Kevin Krone, Southwest Airlines Vice President of Marketing, Sales, and Distribution, said of the offer, "We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than rewarding our Customers who've kept Southwest flying all these years!"

Sample fares include $39 between Baltimore/Washington and New York LaGuardia, $79 between Chicago Midway and Houston Hobby, and $119 between Los Angeles and Philadelphia.

Seats are limited and the sale fares are not valid on Fridays and Sundays.
