Skybus Goes Point To Point

Skybus has started selling tickets for direct flights between Portsmouth, N.H., and two Florida destinations: St. Augustine and Punta Gorda. (Or, in Skybus-speak, between Boston and Jacksonville / Daytona Beach and between Boston and Fort Meyers.)

The flights will begin Dec. 17. The $10 seats are sold out. But there are some seats left at this writing for $40 (plus taxes and fees, of course.)

This is a new strategy for Skybus, which has been routing all its flights to its Columbus hub, without typical connecting service. Passengers have to drag their own bags to their onward flights.

No direct flights have been announced from Chicopee, Mass., (known as Hartford to Skybus) other than the late evening flight to Columbus.
