Southwest Airlines offers deep discount on summer fares due to pandemic

Southwest Airlines is doing what it can to try and persuade people to take flights again by offering cheap fares.
The company is offering one-way summer fares starting at $49.
The domestic airline says the sale covers travel between May 26 through August 31.
Frequent flyer points will also be doubled during that time.
The promotion comes as the airline struggles to fill seats during the pandemic.
