The Southwest Flight Schedule is now open for booking through April 11, 2021. The airline has delayed the original scheduled release of the next set of flights, through June 5, 2021, from November to December 10, 2020.
That date is subject to change and very likely to change with all the fluctuations happening due to the pandemic.

Ready to book your Southwest flight?
The easiest way to book flights on Southwest is through the Southwest Low Fare Calendar, which shows you the lowest prices — in points or dollars — for your flight across a range of dates.
Right now, fares are incredibly cheap due to low demand as a result of the pandemic. While you may not want to travel right now, it’s a GREAT time to book summer and fall flights at some of the lowest prices you may ever see!

Did You Know 1 Person Can Always Fly Free With You on Southwest?
Did you know that you can earn the Southwest Companion Pass that lets one person fly free with you for up to two years?
You simply need to earn 125,000 qualifying points, which is most easily accomplished by signing up for one of the Southwest personal credit cards and one business Southwest credit card OR two business Southwest cards.
Right now, all three personal Southwest cards are offering a 40,000-point bonus. Here are your options:
This post breaks down all the benefits and annual fees of each Southwest credit card so you can pick the best one for you.

Get MORE Points for FREE Southwest Flights
You can apply for and use my favorite card, Chase Sapphire Preferred (read my full review here), a more flexible travel card, which allows you to transfer points into your Southwest Rapid Rewards account instantly at a 1:1 ratio, as well as to other airline and hotel partners.
The card has a $95 annual fee the first year and grants you 80,000 points for a LIMITED TIME only (its HIGHEST EVER OFFER!) after meeting a $4,000 minimum spend in the first three months. Plus, you earn DOUBLE points on dining and travel purchases.
Keep in mind, that points earned using Chase Sapphire Preferred DO NOT qualify for the Southwest Companion Pass, but CAN be used to book free flights.
