Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.

Although it might not seem like it just yet for those in the Northeast, JetBlue is ringing in spring with a flash sale. As part of the two-day sale, which JetBlue is calling “The Big Spring Sale,” you can find one-way flights from $33 and round-trip flights from $82. To take advantage, you must book by March 16, 2018, at 11:59pm ET or local time, and travel between March 27 and June 20, 2018. There are blackout dates between May 22-30.

Because so many cities are part of this sale, it’ll be best to check out JetBlue’s page in order to find out exactly which ones are included. The best way to find availability is to search Google Flights for the routes and dates and then click through to JetBlue’s website to book. Act quick! These fares won’t last long — they’ll be available through Friday only.
