$49 tickets? Southwest Airlines launches 3-day sale

CHICAGO -- That end-of-summer vacation or trip home this fall won't cost a fortune - if you plan it right. Southwest Airlines announced a nationwide sale that includes one-way tickets for as low as $49.

The flight deals are available now until June 8 at 11:59 p.m. The three-day sale means you can book round-trip tickets for less than $100.

The sale only includes one-way "Wanna Get Away" fares. For longer flights, the pricing increases to $79, $99, or $129 for fares included in the sale.

One-way flights from Midway International Airport to Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Detroit, Flint, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Louisville, Memphis, Omaha, Pittsburgh and St. Louis were among those available for $49.
