JetBlue Flight Sale between Albuquerque and New York

You may have heard already that JetBlue is starting to serve Albuquerque next year, with a daily nonstop flight to and from New York JFK airport.  This new JetBlue route starts on April 22, 2013, and it will be the first New York flight out of Albuquerque since 2008 that doesn’t require a change somewhere en route – praise be!

To launch the new route, JetBlue’s sale on flights between Albuquerque and New York is available until Black Friday, November 23, with air fares starting at $66 one way, including taxes and fees.  Sale fares are valid on flights on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday between  April 23 and May 22, 2013.

The $66 flights are to celebrate Route 66. Shame they couldn’t celebrate I-25 instead, huh? The fares would be even cheaper :-) There are limited $66 flights available but even if you can’t snag one of those on the date you want, some of the other JetBlue fares to and from New York during this period are $109 or $130. That’s still far lower in price than most of the fares I’m seeing at Southwest Airlines, which require a change instead of JetBlue’s direct flights.

The JetBlue sale fares allow you to take one checked bag for free. The only drawback (from my point of view) is that the flight for the daily Albuquerque to New York flight is a red-eye – leaving Albuquerque just before midnight and arriving just before 6 am the following morning. The return from New York JFK leaves at a more civilized 8:25 pm, landing in Albuquerque at 11:04 pm.

Make reservations at for the sale fares available through November 23, 2012.
