JetBlue’s Latest Flash Sale Ends at Midnight Tonight
JetBlue’s latest flash sale will end at midnight tonight. The low prices are good for midweek flights (Tuesday and Wednesday) from July 13 through Oct. 26. Round trip fare deals include $197 for New York-Daytona Beach, $129 for Long Beach-Portland and $247 for Los Angeles-Buffalo.

Allegiant Challenges United at Newark
This November, Allegiant Airlines will begin flying to four destinations from New York Newark Airport. The flights to Savannah, Cincinnati, Asheville and Knoxville were announced recently, and the airline has promised introductory fares as low as $39 one way.

Delta Had Already Pulled Out of Istanbul Because of Security Concerns
Delta Air Lines was worried about security at Ataturk Istanbul Airport well before yesterday’s attacks. The Atlanta-based carrier ended service to the hub a month ago citing security concerns and a lack of profitability.

Austin Gets First Nonstop Flight to Frankfurt
Condor Airlines is operating seasonal flights between Austin Bergstrom International Airport and Frankfurt, Germany. The service will run between now and Sept. 1. Austin has expanded its immigration and customs area so that it can accept even more international flights.


Delta CEO Ed Bastian has said that he would like his airline to start flying between its Atlanta hub and Shanghai, China again. However, Bastian also said that this will not be possible in the near future because of a lack of available slots and the expense of aircraft allocation. 

easyJet has started to work on an alternative operating license within the EU. The UK-based LCC expects Britain to be able to negotiate a deal that will allow its airlines to access Europe, but it wants to be prepared should that not happen.  

Bahamasair has started a second route between the Bahamas and Orlando. The regional carrier already flies between Nassau and Orlando (MCO) up to three times per day. Its new route is between Freeport, on Grand Bahama, and Orlando. This route will be served twice per week.  

Allegiant Airlines has decided to turn its seasonal service between Missoula, Montana and Los Angeles into year-round service. Allegiant already offers year-round flights from Missoula to Las Vegas and Mesa, Arizona.
