You Can Score Southwest Flights From $59 for a Limited Time

As summer travel season kicks into high gear, airlines are looking to lure customers in with some deals. Southwest has joined the party this week with its new pre-summer sale, offering flights as low as $59 to select destinations.

The sale runs from now through June 1, with travel between June 15 and November 1 of this year within the continental United States. Travel to and from Hawaii as well as between its islands is discounted from August 8 to November 1. Meanwhile, travel to and from San Juan, Puerto Rico, is discounted from August 15 to November 1.

Unless otherwise designated, discount fares are typically on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Fares are non-refundable, but can be applied towards future Southwest travel as long as you cancel ahead of your flight. And, of course, all levels of tickets on Southwest include two free checked bags.

Check out all the deals over on Southwest's website. Use the Low Fare Calendar view to compare fares across an entire month and score the best deal. You'll have the best chance at finding the lowest fares from Southwest's hubs like Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Oakland, Orlando, Phoenix, and Tampa, but there are tons of options no matter where you're headed.

If you're looking to get away outside the U.S., you might also want to check out the Memorial Day Weekend sale from low-cost Icelandic carrier PLAY airlines, which is offering 35 percent off flights booked between now and Sunday, May 28.

It's about to be a big summer for travel.
