You may come across an unfamiliar airline on your next domestic flight search. JetAmerica, not to be confused with the international fleet JetBlue, will hit runways as of July 13. The low-cost airline is based in Clearwater, FL, and will serve midsized US cities that some larger carriers have clipped from their flight schedules.
JetAmerica will introduce 34 weekly nonstop flights at Toledo, OH; South Bend, IN.; Melbourne, FL; Newark, NJ; Minneapolis, MN; and Lansing, MI, and plans to roll out six more flights from Toledo to Minneapolis starting August 14. The first nine on each flight will cost just $9 (plus fees), with prices topping out at $199. Checking a bag will cost $15 per piece, and passengers will be charged for in-flight amenities like food and TV.
