Travel nonstop from Chicago-Midway to New Orleans for $110 roundtrip on Southwest Airlines through October. For those in Big Easy looking to visit the Second City, this fare also works in reverse at the same price.

Travel Availability

Travel is available on select Tuesdays and Wednesdays from mid-July through the end of October. Seats are selling out fast so availability is a bit hit-and-miss in certain months.

Searching Southwest, I found this price available departing Chicago-Midway MDW on Wednesday, September 11, returning from New Orleans MSY on Wednesday, September 18, 2019.


This fare includes a carry-on bag, a personal item, and two free checked bags.

Seat Assignments

Southwest has an open seating policy, which means there are no assigned seats and you'll get to choose your seat during boarding. The order of boarding is determined by the time of check-in, so check-in exactly 24 hours before departure or pay for priority boarding for a better choice of seat.

Alternate Fares

American Airlines is matching this $109 roundtrip fare but to Chicago O'Hare (ORD) on a handful dates.
