It’s JetBlue’s 10th anniversary this year, so in order to commemorate ten years of serving free Terra blue chips, flying quirkily named planes (Tale of Blue Cities?) and being an all-around great airline, the low-cost carrier is having a major spring sale on airfare and hotel packages right now. Amazingly JetBlue is selling flights as low as $29 each way—Floridians, say hello to the Bahamas for me—but we’re here to talk Bermuda right? From New York’s JFK, JetBlue is selling one-way flights to Bermuda for as little as $69 based upon a roundtrip purchase. That means with taxes and fees a roundtrip flight would cost $232.50—still a bargain when you consider flights to the Caribbean are usually twice that. The offer is valid for travel between April 22 and June 16, although not on Saturdays and Sundays with blackout dates from May 27 to June 1. New Englanders are getting similar savings from Boston’s Logan Airport: $99 each way good from May 1 to May 27, and yes, some blackout dates apply. The only catch is that you’ve got to book by April 21 (for more great fares visit JetBlue’s Spring Sale). But that’s not all! Looking for a hotel too? Then check out these mind-blowingly low air/hotel packages from JetBlue Getaways. For example, a four-night stay at the luxurious Fairmont Southampton with roundtrip airfare from New York costs from $615 per person! Considering the exact same package cost nearly double not too long ago, it’s one heckuva deal: If booked for two, the sale price saves you $1,230 when compared to its original price (for more on JetBlue Getaways click here). So what are you waiting for? The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and Bermuda is calling your name.
