Flights from October 15 to February. Liberia (LIR) is also part of this sale, with NONSTOP round-trips starting at $292.

Southwest has a “Flexible Date” tool on their site, and I highly recommend that you use it when you’re looking for flight availability.

Other airlines often match Southwest, so you may want to check your dates against the others on BookingBuddy to see if other airlines are matching.
