Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend that you use Airfare Watchdog for this deal to compare booking between these services to find the best deal. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book as soon as possible.

JetBlue offered some fantastic deals last month, including $31 flights on Halloween and cheap flights to Las Vegas and Lake Tahoe from New York. The deals continue this week with cheap nonstop flights to a bunch of destinations in the Caribbean from JetBlue’s JFK hub.

Travelers looking for an escape from the cold can find flights to Antigua, Barbados, Grand Cayman, Dominican Republic and more. The cheapest fare we found is $280 round-trip from New York to Antigua — other sale fares can be had for a bit more, with discounted destinations topping out at $480 round-trip. Prices seem to vary a bit between dates, so be sure to take advantage of flexible search options to find the best deal.
