· Alaska Airlines:
This week brings new routes and news from Alaska Airlines, as they’re getting ready to send some planes and people to new spots beginning later this year. New flights are coming to link Anchorage and Phoenix beginning on December 18, and the day after they’ll also be starting nonstop flights between Anchorage and Las Vegas. Some of the introductory fares will start at around $189 each way, so that’s not too shabby. The flights will run three times a week; however, the flights between Anchorage and Phoenix are a seasonal option. They’re going to shut down that one on April 19 of next year.
· Philippine Airlines:
Getting to Australia just got a little bit easier thanks to Philippine Airlines. The carrier will be adding three new flights to Australia, as they’re looking to visit spots like Darwin, Perth, and Brisbane. They are already pretty familiar with flying down under, as they already have links doing their thing into both Sydney and Melbourne. These new flights are probably a pretty good option for some, but for us at Jaunted HQ—we just need to get to Manila first before we can hop aboard one of these flights.

For fans of Frontier—and the furry critters on their airplanes—it’s time to get the credit card digits ready for some flights. The carrier just opened up their booking window through the beginning of next year, and they also announced that they’ll resume some seasonal options. Specifically they’re extending the seasonal service in and out of Denver to spots like Eugene, Oregon; Knoxville, Tennessee; and Greensboro—that’s in North Carolina. Most of these options do their thing between September and October through early January of next year. They’re even offering some one-way flights for as low as $99 each way, as Frontier is eager to share some seats.
