Southwest is knocking down the Las Vegas route to $29 for a one-way trip for flights between March 30 to June 30. 

The discount is available until 9:59 p.m. on Friday. 

Other California routes also have the $29 discount price: 

  • The route between Santa Barbara and Las Vegas
  • The route between Palm Springs and Phoenix
  • The route between Long Beach and Oakland
  • The route between San Diego and San Francisco

In addition to Southwest’s entrance into Fresno, the airline is opening up shop in Santa Barbara on April 12.
