Southwest Airlines Is Giving Away Free Flights and I’m Packing My Bags

I have the worst itch to travel but, COVID has wrecked all my travel plans the last 18 months.

If you feel the same, you are going to LOVE this! Southwest Airlines is giving away FREE flights so it’s time to pack those bags!

Here’s How The Free Flight from Southwest Airlines Works

Southwest Airlines is doing a sort of BOGO deal right now but there is a catch – you have to book your trip by Thursday, Sept. 9, 2021.

You’ll need to book a roundtrip ticket or two one-way tickets for travel through Nov. 18 then you will receive a free companion pass to use in early 2022. 

So, book your travel plans by September 9, 2021 for travel up to November 18, 2021 then you’ll get a free companion pass to use in 2022 to travel again!!

If you typically travel Southwest then you know that they have a very generous companion pass perk but is usually out of reach for most travelers because it requires travelers to take 100 one-way flights in a year or rack up 125,000 qualifying points earned from purchases on Southwest’s credit cards and bookings with its Rapid Reward partners.

So, basically you can earn that perk without having to book 100 one-way flights – SCORE!

If you book and receive this pass, you will be able to bring a companion for free on flights between Jan. 6 and Feb. 28, 2022. Passengers who earn the pass will designate a companion and it may be changed up to three times. The companion’s taxes and fees, which start at $5.60 one way, are extra.

You can pre-plan a trip for a special someone next year without having to pay for their flight. Isn’t that amazing?!

So, hurry over to book your vacation/flight on Southwest Airlines so you can score that free companion flight pass!
