Everything may be sunshine, beach-side barbeques, and picnics in the park right now, but once October rolls around that looming feeling will hit, and youll know the winter months are too close for comfort. When it does, youll have a tough decision to make – accept cold weather as inevitable, or run away from it. We suggest living in denial for another week or so, and by booking a flight ahead of time on one of JetBlues new routes to tropical locations, youll save some cold-hard cash in the process.
Take off from the new T5 terminal in New Yorks JFK airport, and within a few short hours you can be soaking up the sun in Jamaica, Barbados, or St. Lucia. Nonstop flights start at just $99 each way, but tickets must be booked by June 17 for travel valid through November 14. Daily service to Barbados begins October 1, and Kingston Jamaica starts October 30. Flights to St. Lucia will be available Mondays, Thursdays, and Sundays beginning October 26.
The Catch: You cant prolong the cold weather forever, but then again, these are one-way fares.
