Today, Southwest Airlines is extending its flight schedule. Until now, passengers could only book flights through January 5, 2022. Today, Southwest will open up bookings through April 24, 2022. These additional dates include spring break timeframe for most school districts and universities. New flights will start to trickle to the online flight schedule throughout this morning.
Keep in mind that Southwest is one of the most flexible airlines when it comes to flight changes. You can change your flight up to 10 minutes before departure time with no fees. If you pay cash for a Wanna Get Away fare and need to cancel, you can use the funds for a new flight within a year of your original booking date. Travelers who book with Southwest Rapid Rewards points can get their points redeposited upon cancellation.
Don’t forget that you can transfer points from Chase Ultimate Rewards on a 1:1 basis.
I plan to look for flights for my spring break trip to Florida today. It’s not usually urgent to book Southwest flights on the day they are released. But, certain popular dates sell quickly and drive the price up.
