JetBlue Offers $299 Unlimited Flights for Pets
(NEW YORK) — Frequent fliers by the name of Fido, your time has come.
This fall, JetBlue will offer unlimited flights for cats and dogs accompanied by their owners for $299.
The “All Your Pet Can Jet” pass allows the purchaser to add one pet to an unlimited number of JetBlue flight bookings for travel between Sept. 7 and Dec. 31, 2012, without paying the JetBlue standard pet fee. There are no blackout dates — good news for those traveling over the holidays.
The pass allows pets to travel everywhere the carrier flies with the exception of Jamaica, St. Lucia and Barbados.
The All Your Pet Can Jet pass went on sale Wednesday and will be on sale through Sept. 5, 2012 or “while supplies last.” The carrier did not specify how many passes will be on sale.
Holding a pass does not guarantee your pet will get on the flight. The carrier allows only four pets per flight. The combined weight of the pet and carrier can’t exceed 20 pounds, and the carrier must fit under the seat in front of you.
The fee for having a pet fly is typically $100 on one-way trips and $200 on roundtrip flights. Passes can’t be shared among travelers, but the pass holder may take different pets on multiple flights.
Also on sale Wednesday — for humans — is the JetBlue Go Pack. It allows people to pay one fare — between $699 and $2,499, plus tax — for 10 roundtrip tickets among airports in Boston, New York, Long Beach, Calif., and San Juan, P.R.
The Go Pack is available for purchase now through Sept. 6 for travel through Dec. 19. Unlike the All Your Pet Can Jet pass, there are blackout dates — Nov. 20-26, 2012.
