If you’re looking for an international getaway, there are tickets to Grand Cayman from Fort Lauderdale for $89 one-day. There are even tickets from Fort Lauderdale to Havana for $142 one-way. 

The sale is not valid on travel during Labor Day weekend, including September 1st, 2nd, and 5th. Most destinations in the United States are not available for booking on Fridays and Sundays. Flights to locations such as Miami, Las Vegas, and Orlando are only available Sundays through Wednesdays.

Southwest’s Wanna Get Away fare and Wanna Get Away Plus fare is available to travelers who purchase tickets during the sale. These fares allow travelers to transfer unused flight credits to someone to use in the future. They also allow travelers to take standby flights and have same-day changes.


The airline is currently renovating its airplanes with larger overhead bins, better onboard Wi-Fi, and personal chargers.
