For example, travelers can fly to Chicago for $49, Miami for $54, Fort Lauderdale for $59, and Cancun for $99. Those interested must book by Feb. 1 for travel between Feb. 5 and March 31. JetBlue is Logan International Airport‘s largest carrier.

United Airlines is offering a quick sale for National Plan for Vacation Day on Tuesday for travel between Feb. 7 and May 18, with one-way flights from Boston to New York and Washington, D.C. for $39 and to San Francisco and Houston for $129.


Want to get up close to the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa? Emirates is offering 25 percent off flights to Dubai, recently named the most popular travel destination in 2022 by Tripadvisor. Travelers must book by Feb. 6 for travel through April 30.
