Travelers who move fast can score one-way fares on JetBlue Airways (Stock Quote: JBLU) as low as $9 for travel this Saturday, July 11. The special sale, available today only, runs until 6 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. The deal, revealed today by JetBlue on Twitter, is the first of a planned series of Monday sales, which will also be announced on Twitter, according to JetBlue (www.jetblue.com), and known as Cheep Deals.
Seats – which are subject to availability and are expected to sell out fast – include $9 one-way fares between New York John F. Kennedy International Airport and Nantucket, $9 Boston to JFK, $19 Boston to Washington (Dulles), $19 JFK to Chicago, $29 from Orlando to Aguadilla, Puerto Rico.
JetBlue says it is freeing up 25 to 50 seats on these and other selected flights at the ultra-cheap rates. This quick sale – announced on the Internet and lasting just one day, is part of an increasingly popular trend – the “flash sale,’’ which airlines, hotels and other travel providers are using.
