Last chance for $49 one-way fares during JetBlue’s birthday sale

Last chance for  one-way fares during JetBlue’s birthday sale

Editor’s note: This post has been updated with new information.

JetBlue Airways is celebrating its 23rd birthday this week with five days of deals. It is ending the week with a big birthday surprise – one last chance to snag fares as low as $49 one-way.

Don’t forget that you still have time to take advantage of deals from earlier in the week, including up to $600 off flight-and-hotel or flight-and-cruise vacation packages through JetBlue Vacations and a 2-points-per-dollar bonus on hotel bookings with Paisly.

Deal basics


Airline: JetBlue Airways.
How to book: Directly with the airline.
Travel dates: March 1 through April 26, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays only.
Book by: Feb. 10 at 11:59 p.m. EST.

Offer details

The lowest fares that ring in at $44 are Blue Basic fares, which charge extra for seat selection and baggage. You can pay at least $100 to change these fares, depending on the route. For Blue, Blue Basic and Blue Extra fares, your first checked bag is $35, and the second checked bag is $45.

Blue Basic fares do not include a full-size carry-on bag, and any carry-on bag beyond the personal item brought to the gate will need to be checked and incur a fee.

However, those with JetBlue elite status on a Blue Basic fare do still get a free carry-on, and those with a JetBlue credit card get a free checked item on that fare.
