The sale runs through 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 28, with domestic deals available for travel between Jan. 1 and May 23 of 2018. Meanwhile, you can book international flights between Jan. 9 and March 1 of next year, or between April 3 and May 18, 2018.
Passengers planning to fly with the airline next year will also want to keep in mind that Southwest will be one of several airlines banning certain types of smart luggage on flights starting in January due to safety concerns over batteries causing potential fires.
To fly with the airline, you’ll want to make sure your smart luggage has a removable battery.
