(GRAY NEWS) – Southwest has launched a fare sale with tickets starting at $29 each way.

The discounted flights are available through Thursday.

Whether it’s hitting the slopes or sitting in the sand, Southwest hopes this bargain buy will keep the ball rolling after the busier-than-expected holiday travel season.

Airlines have been struggling during the pandemic because of the huge drop in air travel.

The Transportation Security Administration says screening volume was down 61% in 2020.

The CDC says: Practice social distancing, avoid touching surfaces, and practice hand hygiene.
