With a major presence in Boston—along with plenty of other cities in surrounding states—JetBlue has shown New England the love for quite some time. However, there was always one spot missing—Providence, Rhode Island. That’s no longer the case for those that like to fly to or through TF Green, as JetBlue just announced that Providence is going to be their 75th destination. Nonstop flights to both Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale are set to fire up towards the end of November. Best of all, one-way fares will start at just $75 each way to celebrate the new route—happy booking!
Also of note for JetBlue: New York to Cartagena, Colombia, now on sale starting at $149 each way and starting up November 2, 2012.
There’s a little bit of an identity crisis going on with AirTran, as after all, they’re quickly being gobbled up and absorbed by Southwest Airlines. However, before the fly off into the sunset there’s still time for some new destinations. This week AirTran announced that they’d be adding some flights to and from Detroit, as they look to connect the Motor City with Fort Myers, Florida. Snowbirds rejoice, as the new flights are set to do their thing beginning on Valentine’s Day of 2013. It’s not too long of a flight, but there’s always in-flight WiFi to keep you entertained—just in case.

They mean business when it comes to announcing some new routes, so that must be why United announced a whole bunch of them all at once—and all from Chicago-O’Hare. Monterrey, Mexico becomes a nonstop option as of December 19, and after that each and every Saturday there will be a flight over to the Bahamas beginning on February 9. Flights to Thunder Bay, Ontario and Jackson, Mississippi are also headed to schedule. Finally, United will be bringing some planes to Anchorage this winter, in addition to their usual summer seasonal offerings.
