After facing computer issues and subsequent flight cancellations for days, Southwest Airlines is giving customers another reason to book a flight.

On Tuesday, the major U.S. carrier offered "50% off base fares for 50 days of fall travel," which will only last for 48 hours. Customers can use the limited time discount to book a flight this coming fall through June 17.    

Southwest chairman and CEO Gary Kelly said in April that his airline has seen steady improvement in U.S. leisure-travel sales since mid-February. The sale may be one way to help that momentum continue especially to lure in travelers after the busy summer season winds down. 

Last week the airline also announced it was offering travel to new cities and additional flights for travel throughout the holiday season as the world inches back to pre-pandemic times and airlines try and recover after a year of losses.
