The signs of fall are in the air. Besides the gunmetal skies and leaf-clogged drains, a major airline Tuesday launched a big fare sale.
Southwest Airlines announced a sale for flights during the slack times between the holidays. One-way fares are as low as $30 on a limited number of seats.
The fares are distance-based .
For Puget Sound travelers, for instance, that translates into $30 flights to Spokane or Boise; $60 flights to the Bay Area or Las Vegas; $90 flights to Denver or Tucson, Ariz.; and $120 flights to Boston or New Orleans.
The fares are available through Thursday and are good for travel between Dec. 1 and Dec. 15 and from Jan. 4 through Feb. 16.
