JetBlue: Bikes Fly Free in July

July 9th, 2010 [print] Go to comments

With most airlines charging well over $100 to bring your bicycle aboard, JetBlue has decided to let bikes fly free–waiving their normal $50 fee–to celebrate the Tour de France.

While they typically allow folding bikes on free of charge, let’s face it, not many people actually ride those.  So, if you’re heading anywhere by air for the remainder of July 2010, head over to JetBlue to book your flight.

Once the promotion is over, I’d personally suggest shipping your bike UPS or FedEx if you have a destination location with someone to sign for it.  I used this method last April when I went to NYC for a week, and it was about $45 each way–cheaper than JetBlue’s typical charge, and far less than other airlines.
