In the bad old days before direct Southwest Airlines flights to Memphis, when Delta dominated that market, it was usually far cheaper to book a flight from Houston to Little Rock, rent a car and make the short drive across the Mississippi River to visit Graceland than it was to fly to the home of the blues directly.
Today, that flight is even cheaper than usual: a one-way ticket to Memphis from Houston is only $49 during Southwest Airlines' 72-hour sale, which ends tomorrow night. And that's not the only deal on deck. Check out these fabulously low direct flight fares from Houston—including international destinations:
- New Orleans: $42
- Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas and San Antonio: $49
- Boston: $69
- Washington D.C. and Pensacola: $79
- Mexico City: $89
- Denver: $94
- Albuquerque, Birmingham, Charleston, Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Nashville, Panama City Beach and Raleigh/Durham: $99
There are more flights available over the $100 price point—including a $139 fare to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico—but if you're aiming to book one of these ultra-cheap tickets, you'll need to act fast. The sale ends October 12, 2017, 11:59 p.m.
