Southwest Airlines has released its flight schedule through early summer 2024, which means you can now book Southwest flights for travel through June 3, 2024.
Here are the details you’ll need to book those spring and summer trips you’ve been thinking about.
Southwest Airlines has released its schedule through June 3, 2024, which means it’s time to book the late spring/early summer trips you’ve been eyeing. If you’re not quite sure yet where you want to travel, don’t forget that Southwest flies to lots of vacation spots including Hawaii, as well as international destinations such as Costa Rica and the Caribbean.
Unlike other airlines that release schedules about 11 months in advance, Southwest releases its schedule in smaller chunks, usually about 6 to 8 months in advance.
Why is this so important, you might ask? Flights tend to increase in price as you get closer to your desired travel dates, so you can often save money by booking flights as soon as they’re released. Since Southwest doesn’t charge change or cancellation fees, there’s no downside to booking early.
If you book your flight with Rapid Rewards points and the price drops, you can change your flight to the lower-priced option and get a points refund. Southwest offers a few different fare classes. For instance, if you booked a Wanna Get Away or Wanna Get Away Plus fare with money, you can get a flight credit in the amount of the price difference.
If you book an Anytime or Business Select ticket, your fare is fully refundable whether you paid with points or money.
Southwest Airlines releases its flight schedule in small chunks throughout the year. Currently, flights through June 3, 2024, are available to book.
On October 26, 2023, Southwest will release its schedule for flights through August 4, 2024.
Southwest Airlines doesn’t release a flight schedule in the same manner as other airlines, instead opting for small chunks of flights released throughout the year.
Currently, flights through June 3, 2024, are available to book. On October 26, 2023, Southwest will release additional flights through August 4, 2024.
