Let this serve as a friendly reminder to those looking to escape the cold weather during the winter, as JetBlue just started some new nonstop flights in and out of Connecticut. The planes are now doing the nonstop thing from Bradley International Airport—just outside of Hartford—to both Fort Myers and Tampa. Airbus A320s are the ones doing all of the up in the air stuff, and the flights operate on a daily basis. The ice and snow will be here before you know it, so if these flights are what you need during January and February—book ‘em now.
Please excuse us if we’ve mentioned this one before, but now it’s time to officially take to the skies. Icelandair just increased their offerings to and from the nifty fifty, as this week they started flying nonstop between Newark and Reykjavik. No wide-bodied aircraft here, as Boeing 757s will be responsible for the short trip across much of the Atlantic. This is destination number eight out of the United States, and this new flight will do its thing four times each and every week—at least for now.

If you’re looking for a cheap flight in and out of Australia look no further than Scoot, as the low cost carrier is starting some new service down under. Scoot is launching service between Perth and Singapore beginning on December 19, and the introductory flights won’t even run you $100 each way. Just over 400 passengers will be snuggled and situated aboard some Boeing 777s, and things are on the schedule to run five times per week.
