NEW YORK, July 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq: JBLU), New York's Hometown Airline™, wants to help New Yorkers beat the heat this summer with a promotion that gives city-dwellers a chance to get out of town as the mercury rises. Starting today through July 20, 2013 beginning at 12 pm if the weather.com temperature reading at jetblue.com/hotseats hits 90 degrees for New York's Central Park, JetBlue will release a limited number of Hot Seats promo codes.
The promo codes will be good while very limited supplies last for 90% off of the base fare of a roundtrip JetBlue flight from New York area airports (John F. Kennedy, LaGuardia and Newark) to any of the more than 50 (potentially cooler) destinations that the airline flies to nonstop from New York. (a) Flights must be booked the day of the temperature spike when the promotional code is revealed and travel must be for the departure and return dates specified on the Hot Seats page for the particular promo code. Codes will be subject to very limited availability and are only good while supplies last, so check the temperature on jetblue.com/hotseats often and act quickly!
"New Yorkers bear the brunt of extreme weather conditions including average summertime temperatures that rank 10 degrees higher than outlying areas. Subway stations can even reach up to 20 degrees higher than outside areas," said Tom Lloyd, JetBlue's manager of meteorology. "Summer heat waves of 90 degrees or higher bring stifling heat and humidity. When your idea of cooling off is walking under an AC unit that's dripping water, you could use a vacation."
"As New York's hometown airline, we wanted to do something special for New Yorkers to help them beat the heat," said Marty St. George, JetBlue's senior vice president of marketing and commercial strategy. "Even the most devoted urbanites need a short break from the blistering summer heat. When temperatures hit 90 degrees, we will provide travelers in the Big Apple with a chance to briefly get out of town to experience one of the many destinations we fly to from the New York area."
The fun loving airline is always looking for unique ways to surprise and delight customers. Hot today, get out tomorrow - the limited time Hot Seats promotion offers customers a chance to get out of town quickly to relax and refresh. Hot Seats provides the perfect excuse for a spontaneous trip to many JetBlue destinations that offer cooler climates and seaside locales such as Martha's Vineyard; Nantucket or Portland, Maine. West coast hot spots like San Francisco; Portland, Oregon or Seattle, Washington beat the humidity. Of course, Caribbean destinations including Bahamas; Jamaica; Turks and Caicos and San Juan, Puerto Rico are always appealing regardless of temperature.
For those that miss out on the Hot Seats offer or are not in the New York area, JetBlue is offering a special chance to get away with a discount of $100 on JetBlue Getaways vacation packages of 5+ nights booked now through July 25 at www.jetblue.com/getaways for travel between July 16, 2013 and February 12, 2014.
