We knew it was in the works, but this week was finally the time for JetBlue to head over to destination number 76—Charleston, South Carolina. The flights started up yesterday on February 28, as JetBlue now flies nonstop to Charleston from both New York-JFK and Boston. There’s two options each and every day out of New York City, and one option to and from Boston—for now—as Boston will have a second option on Saturdays beginning on April 6. JetBlue is even offering up some kind of sale on the new routes, as now through March 10 one-way fares can be had for as little as $79 out of New York. Of course free on-board snacks thanks to JetBlue make the voyage down south even that much better.
Sometimes our new route memory gets a little cloudy, but we’re pretty sure that we mentioned that AirTran—under the Southwest Airlines umbrella—was getting ready to fly to Los Cabos, Mexico. Well it sounds like they have gotten all the paperwork ready to go, and they’ve updated their website with the ability to buy some tickets. The new nonstop option between Austin and Los Cabos is now up for your booking pleasure, as AirTran looks to connect the two spots each and every day of the week. Flights begin on June 1, so if you’re looking for a warm weather escape they’ve got you covered.

The Mardi Gras season has come and gone, and of course the Super Bowl has long since left the city of New Orleans. However, there are still plenty of beignets, gumbo, and to-go daiquiris to be had, so Delta is getting ready to up their offerings to and from New Orleans. Right now they offer a pair of nonstop flights between New Orleans and Los Angeles, but it sounds like they’re eager for more. Beginning on September 4 they’ll add a third nonstop option between the two cities, and this one will depart Los Angeles around 8:30am and get into New Orleans at around 2pm—all times local. Airbus A319s will do all of the flying fun, and of course since it’s Delta they’ll be plenty of opportunities to jump aboard their in-flight WiFi.
