The cheapest flight on Southwest Airlines is now the cheapest to fly between New York City and New Jersey.
The company announced Tuesday that it would offer a nonstop roundtrip from New York to Washington D.C. for $10,000 from New Year’s Eve through February 5, 2017.
The roundtrip includes the cost of airfare, hotel accommodations, meals, transportation and tax and fee exemptions.
The first flight, a return flight from Dallas to New Jersey, costs $3,100, according to Southwest.
The airline’s New Year holiday schedule includes flights to Las Vegas, Phoenix, San Diego, Las Vegas and Washington, D. C.
All of those trips are discounted, from a $7,500 roundtrip to $5,500, the airline said.
That’s up from $6,100 before.
Southwest said it had been offering nonstop flights to New Orleans and St. Louis for several years, but the cost per seat increased dramatically last year.
It also increased the price of its New Year ticket to $8,000 for the roundtrip between New Orleans, St. Charles and Dallas.
