JetBlue Airways Corp. introduces JetBlue Getaways, a one-stop value-priced vacation website, designed to meet customers' demand for self-directed, packaged travel planning. Packages include air travel on JetBlue, a selection of JetBlue-recommended hotels and resorts, and car rental.

"Our customers have consistently asked us not 'if' we offered vacation packages, but 'when'," said Tim Claydon, senior vice president, Sales and Marketing for JetBlue. "By working with the hotels directly, rather than through an intermediary, we are able to offer our customers only the finest properties at great prices. Using the latest technology to combine the lowest JetBlue airfare with the best hotel or resort rate, we are able to offer our customers a new level of value with vacations beginning and ending on JetBlue Airways -- something not available on any other online travel site. All this provides a great opportunity for us to drive incremental sales and increase revenues."

"JetBlue Getaways offers a variety of unique vacation options for a great price," said Rusty McNeal, director, JetBlue Getaways. "Customers can choose each element of their vacation experience, from where they want to go, to when they want to travel, to where they want to stay, all through JetBlue Getaways. Alternatively, customers may also choose a featured theme-based package, where all the elements of the vacation are put together for you. As our airline grows, we look forward to increasing the number of vacation options that are meaningful to our customers."

Featured JetBlue Getaways include:

- The "Royal Flush" Getaway: Two nights at the Monte Carlo Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, starting at $365 per person. We'd tell you more, but what happens in Vegas ... .
