JetBlue and Rhode Island's Big Blue Bug have teamed up to promote the airline's service out of TF Green State Airport with $20 fares to Florida.

In a nod towards their long-awaited arrival, the state’s most recognized landmark, The Big Blue Bug welcomes JetBlue Airways to Rhode Island. In a gesture of support, Big Blue Bug Solutions invited JetBlue to announce their Florida service with a banner under the famed icon. “JetBlue represents important economic development for the State and as such we wanted to help get out the word – plus we couldn’t resist that they are also big and blue!” said Stephan Goldman, president of Big Blue Bug Solutions.

$20 One-Way Fares Today Only

To celebrate the partnership, JetBlue is offering $20 one-way fares between T.F. Green and Fort Lauderdale or Orlando today through Feb. 12, 2013 good for travel between May 1 and June 30, 2013. In addition, customers can take advantage of a JetBlue Getaways Vacation package to Florida inclusive of flights and hotel. Three-night vacations are available for just $279 and come with the best price guarantee and JetBlue’s unique Concierge on Call to assist with those extra vacation needs.

JetBlue donates vacation to Orlando

In a return gesture acknowledging the importance of community service and involvement, JetBlue has donated a vacation package to Orlando for a family of four – a trip they may not have otherwise been able to afford. Colonel Steven G. O’Donnell of The Rhode Island State Police, was instrumental in identifying the deserving family and stated “The Rhode Island State Police work hard at partnering with the community in many ways so it is always gratifying when good corporate partners like JetBlue and Big Blue Bug Solutions look past just the business side and step up to do more.” In addition, T.F. Green Airport will provide free parking for the family at the airport during their trip.

“As the airline that likes to have fun, we’re excited to partner with this iconic landmark and to offer some unbeatable deals to customers in our newest city!” said Regional Marketing Manager Ronda Ivy McLeod. “The Rhode Island community has greeted JetBlue with open arms and we look forward to continuing service in the skies and on the ground for a long time to come.”

JetBlue took to the skies from T.F. Green this past November with two daily flights to Orlando International Airport (MCO) and one daily flight to Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport (FLL). Customers enjoy first checked bag free, comfy leather seats, lots of room to stretch out and personal seatback TVs.

I spent a few formative years in FLA. I know now that Orlando is the center of the World's stupidity. Even worse than Las Stupid. Go to FLA if you must. I'll only go if someone is paying me to go.
