(Remember that one? It was offered in 2009 and 2010 and allowed unlimited flying to all JetBlue destinations for a month.)
In its place, the airline today announced the new BluePass which has a longer validity period, but fewer gateways associated with it. The Blue Pass will allow flyers in the Boston and Los Angeles areas only (sigh) multiple flights from August 22 through November 22.
Here are the details:
- Long Beach Select Blue Pass: For $1299, pass holders will be allowed unlimited flights between that city and Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Oakland, Austin, San Francisco, Sacramento and Las Vegas
- Boston Select Blue Pass: The price is $1499 for travel from Beantown to Chicago, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, New York (JFK), Newark, Baltimore, Richmond, Raleigh, Charlotte, Jacksonville, Bermuda and the two Washington, DC airports.
- Boston All Blue Pass: As the name implies, this pass allows flights from Boston to all the gateways that the airline services, including those in the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America and South America. The price for this one is $1999.
The prices listed above do not include taxes, second bag fees or any of the other ugly extras we've come to expect from air purchases. For those who want to do a lot of international travel this fall, it might make sense to move to Boston for a spell!
Mark your calendars! Last time JetBlue offered passes they sold out within hours, which is why I wanted to give you, dear reader a heads up on this offer, which will go on sale on August 15.
