Looking for an inexpensive flight to Bermuda? Do you live near Toronto or in the New York City metropolitan area? If so, keep reading because there are two major airfares sales happening right now from WestJet and American Airlines. First to Canada, where WestJet’s $72 for 72 hours promotion ends tomorrow (that’s right Canucks, you must book no later than tomorrow at 11:59pm). Valid for departures beginning May 3, nonstop flights to Bermuda from Toronto are $72 (CAN) each way based upon a roundtrip purchase, which means with taxes and fees it’ll cost you $254.27 (or $254.09 in U.S. dollars) to get to Bermuda’s sunny shores. The bargains are even better from New York’s JFK airport. American Airlines is offering fares to Bermuda for as low as $64 each way, which would make a roundtrip ticket with taxes and fees $222.50. You’ll have to book before April 11th for travel valid from Tuesday April 13th through Wednesday April 21st, but if your schedule is flexible, there’s no better time to visit Bermuda. The skies are blue, the sun is shining and your rum swizzle is waiting. Happy jetting!
