JetBlue Launches 48-Hour Airfare Sale

Flights on the CheapDo you have a far-away graduation to attend?  Or do you need to be somewhere for Memorial Day?  Well, if you need to fly and you haven’t booked a ticket yet in hopes of finding a low price, now may be your chance.  JetBlue just announced a 48-hour sale on select flights to various destinations around the United States and the Caribbean.  There are a number of one-way flights priced less than $100 – and you won’t find these fares on Yapta, Expedia, Orbitz, CheapTickets, Travelocity, Priceline or LowestFare – so it’s worth a look.  However, you need to book before May 8th by 11:59 PM.  Travel is good from May 21 through June 19, 2013.  Blackout dates apply: May 23-27.

Here’s some more travel news you can use:

  • If you’re planning to fly Denver-based Frontier Airlines, you better bring some cash.  The airline announced last week that it would begin charging passengers $25-$100 who book tickets on third-party websites – like Expedia and Orbitz – for bringing their bags onboard the flight.  Passengers who purchase tickets on Frontier’s website will incur no additional charge for a carry-on bag.  They will also begin charging economy passengers $1.99 for coffee, tea and juice – starting July 1.
  • Did you know that there are marathons that are run on airport runways?  Me neither.  In fact, there’s a bunch of them.  If you’re interested, here’s a list of seven upcoming runway runs, six in the US and one in Canada.
  • Google is getting their own airport.  The company’s top executives needed a place to store their private jets, so they struck an agreement that allows them to build an $82 million fixed base operation at San Jose International Airport, including an executive terminal, seven hangars, ramp space for converted airliners and servicing facilities.  You could call that a perk.
