Spring may just have sprung, but it's already time to start planning your trips for next winter and flights home for the holidays. You're in luck: You can now book Southwest flights all the way through winter 2025 … and maybe save a ton of money (or Southwest Rapid Rewards points) by booking far in advance!

While most airlines allow you to book flights up to 11 months or more in advance of your travels, Southwest Airlines does it a bit differently. They release their fares in batches, going as far out as about seven to nine months. As of earlier this week, it was only possible to book Southwest Airlines flights into early January – even as other carriers are already selling flights deep into spring 2025.

But that changed this week, as Southwest has now released another two month's worth of flights. The Southwest flight schedule now has flights bookable all the way through March 5, 2025. So if you're trying to plan a trip for next winter, you can book those Southwest flights now.

Thrifty Tip: Every single Southwest ticket includes two free checked bags, making it a great airline for ski trips!

Nervous about making travel plans all the way into next year? Southwest always allows free changes or cancellations. That means you can book a flight as far out as early March now, then change or cancel it (for a travel credit) down the line if need be. Southwest also sells new Wanna Get Away Plus fares that allow you a one-time transfer of those travel credits to another person!

Booking the New Southwest Flight Schedule

Southwest is one of the few airlines that doesn't list flights on Google Flights – or any online travel agency or flight search platform, for that matter. That means you'll always need to start your flight search for Southwest fares directly on their website at southwest.com.

If your travel dates are flexible, we recommend using Southwest's low fare calendar as it will show you the dates with the cheapest fares over a month-long span.

And as far as cancelations and refunds go with Southwest, they have always offered some of the most generous policies in the industry. Long before other carriers ditched change fees, there has never been a fee to cancel or change your Southwest flight.

You can cancel any Southwest flight and be given a voucher for later use. It's one of the many reasons we're big fans of Southwest Airlines.


Bottom Line

The Southwest flight schedule is now open through March 5, 2025. If you're trying to make travel plans for next winter or over the holidays, you can book those flights now.

Trying to plan even further out in 2025? You'll have to wait: Southwest says it won't release another batch of schedules until Aug. 1 … and then, it'll only make flights bookable through April 7, 2025.
