Southwest is one of the most popular airlines in the United States—and for good reason.

Known for their friendly demeanor, fee-free baggage transport (of up to two bags) and affordable prices, it’s no surprise that Southwest is one of the top ten most admired companies in the world.

And there’s even more to love this week, with a flight sale featuring prices as low as $39 one way. Flights in this sale include select destinations in Mexico and the Caribbean, so it’s the perfect opportunity to book a tropical getaway.
