If you’re looking to book last minute cheap flight tickets, there’s still time left to score a cheap flight travel deal with Jet Blue’s special fall preview flash sale, with some flight deals costing less than a bus or train ticket.
JetBlue launched a two-day special flash sale Tuesday and if you missed it there’s still time to book a cheap flight for a quick getaway.
The airline is offing some of the lowest ticket prices of the season with select one-way tickets to specific destinations for as low as $34 starting Tuesday, August 7, through Wednesday, August 8, at 11:59 p.m. EST. This means if you’re interested in a quick getaway to Portland from New York, you could book a one-way flight for $49, according to the JetBlue Fall Runway Preview Sale event.
Although the cheapest flight tickets were from New York to Worcester, MA, that deal could come in handy if you wanted to save money on a trip to Boston. You could fly to Worcester then use the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) Commuter Rail service to bring you into Boston. Depending on transportation schedules, there’s a possibility you can still save some cash on your trip. If you want to fly directly to Boston from New York, you can book a flight for as low as $54.
If you have friends or family in Florida and they’re interested in visiting the Big Apple, there are one-way cheap flight tickets available for as low as $79 one way.
