It was about a month ago when Canadians got some excellent news from WestJet—that the low-cost carrier would begin flying nonstop from Toronto to Bermuda effective May 2010, with one-way flights as low as $129. Those who were paying attention—or perhaps, following WestJet on Twitter—heard about the airline’s one-day sale yesterday, when it slashed fares in half, making a roundtrip flight to Bermuda about $170 with taxes. That deal is unfortunately over, but the good news is there are more cheap flights on the way, this time for everyone in Baltimore, Washington D.C. and Philadelphia. That’s right folks, USA3000 is back. According to USA Today, the charter and discount airline is ramping up its seasonal service to Bermuda, with twice-weekly flights from Baltimore’s BWI and Philadelphia International beginning June 11th. Considering one-way flights will be as low as $99 this summer, there’s really no good reason not to plan Bermuda getaway. But don’t wait too long: The fair weather flier will only be operating from the two east coast gateways through August 16th. Happy jetting!
