HAVANA, Oct 11th On Wednesday, JetBlue announced a special one day sale with one-way tickets for as low as $31. As a result, in some instances, travelers will be able to buy round-trip tickets for an astonishingly low price of $62.
The tickets are targeted towards Halloween travel between October 27 and November 4.
The $31 flights are available for flights on most of JetBlue’s major routes including Atlanta-Boston, Austin-Long Beach, Boston- New York, Chicago-New York, New York-West Palm Beach, Tampa-Washington D.C, and Denver-New York.
Discount fares for flights to destinations outside the US are also available but are pricer. For example, New York to Havana, Cuba is $70 one-way and Orlando to Mexico City, Mexico costs $75 one-way.
The sale ends at 11:59 pm ET on October 11 or when supplies run out. So act fast.
The tickets on offer are for travel on Jetblue’s lowest fare class, Blue. As a result, the tickets do not include free checked luggage. However, passengers are allowed carry-on bags. The tickets also come with JetBlue’s signature complement of free amenities including high-speed internet, satellite TV, snacks, sodas, and satellite radio.
The JetBlue announcement comes one day after Southwest Airlines announced a major fare sale with prices as low as $100 for round-trip flights. That sale ends on October 12. The Southwest sale offers tickets for domestic travel between October 31 and December 19 of this year, and between January 3 and February 14, 2018. Although Southwest’s sale prices are a tad higher, that sale offers more travel options and an extra day to book tickets.
Southwest is also offering tickets to international destinations – such as Havana, Cuba; Punta Cana, Dominican Republic; and Cancun, Mexico – but cost more and are limited to slightly different time frames.
