Southwest Airlines Double Rapid Rewards Points Promotion

Written and Published May 15, 2020


Following the news and updates around the COVID-19 pandemic, many airlines were forced to suspend or reduce their daily operations. We have the latest information from airlines and hotels all around the world. We first saw almost all airlines cutting back on flights or completely stopping all service two months ago. As the pandemic started to slow down, especially in Europe, airlines are slowly rebuilding their schedules, putting out promotions, and most importantly – flying again. Last week we saw British Airways put out a new Avios promotion for all Executive Club members and Air Canada had its first miles sale. Now, Southwest Airlines announced a Double Rapid Rewards Points promotion that will be available until the end of August.
