JetBlue, the New York based airline, is making it easier for people to evacuate Florida ahead of Hurricane Irma. They announced that it has discounted the price of nonstop flights out of Florida to $99 plus tax. Connecting flights are available at a higher price point of $159.
This sale will run through September 13 while seats are still available. JetBlue also announced that additional aircraft have been added to service these cities from it’s available inventory.

Hurricane Irma Statement – Sept. 6, 7 p.m.
We have cancelled approximately 150 flights as of Wednesday at 4 p.m. We are taking a number of steps to assist existing customers and support new reservations for those looking to evacuate:
