If there’s one airline that we just can’t resist when it comes to new route news, it’s JetBlue. This week they’re flying somewhere that they’ve been before, but it’s a brand new city pair that has us dreaming of weekend getaways for some fun in the sun. Nonstop between West Palm Beach, Florida and San Juan, Puerto Rico is now available, and JetBlue is even celebrating with a little bit of an airfare sale.
They’re selling seats for as little as $93 each way, but just be sure to enter those credit cards on or before May 25 to take advantage of the introductory offer. There’s plenty of connection opportunities through West Palm Beach as well, so using the new flight as a connection option might be just what you need.
· Virgin America:
Earlier in the week we might have mentioned some news about Virgin America, and we may or may not have mentioned that they might just been looking to head over to Hawaii. While that information has yet to be confirmed, there is a little bit of news about one of the country’s best carriers looking to expand in and out of Washington Reagan National Airport. Austin, Portland, San Francisco, and San Juan will all be heading to and from the airport now that Uncle Sam has provided the necessary approval to do so, though Virgin will only claim the SFO route. Unfortunately the flights aren’t exactly available for booking just yet, but we’ll be sure to keep an eye out for when the tickets are loaded into the system. Until then there’s always the option to fly out of Washington-Dulles.

They certainly have a long way to go to catch up with JetBlue in and out of Boston, but Southwest Airlines is trying their best by adding a new route to and from Beantown. One of the country’s original discount carriers is planning to link Nashville and Boston starting on August 12. The plan is to fly one nonstop round trip each and every day, and that’s going to compliment Southwest’s other nonstop routes out of Boston like St. Louis, Phoenix, and Baltimore—just to name a couple. We understand that this might not be one of the world’s most interesting routes, but if you’ve never been to Nashville—or Boston—it might just be what you need for a half way decent weekend trip.
