The fares — which are available through 11:59 p.m. CT on March 19 — are good for travel during the period of March 30 to June 30, 2021.

The airline notes that seats, days and markets are limited and that both blackout dates and 21-day advance purchase requirements apply.

One-way nonstop fares being advertised are as low as:
