Dulles Flyer: Tampa Roundtrip for $88…Leaves Tomorrow

Flying Tonight App
Flight Tonight! app, free from iTunes

I’m a sucker for retro graphics so of course I had to download the new Flight Tonight! app available for free from the iTunes store.

This app is for spontaneous travelers who are trawling for cheap flights from their home airport.

It arrays flight information in a new way — by displaying the cheapest available roundtrip flights leaving from your location tonight and tomorrow morning.

Flight Tonight!:  Where Can You Fly This Weekend?

I checked out a number of departure cities to see if there were any deals.

Nothing interesting popped up.

But when I tried my home region (WAS) (for Washington, DC area airports) there was a real bargain:  $88 roundtrip, nonstop to Tampa, Florida!

The app indicated that the fare was available for a number of itineraries — a 2-day, 4-day, 6-day, 7-day,  or 9-day trip.

The flight was on Frontier Airlines, which commenced flying from Dulles International Airport in August 2014.

Thank goodness we finally have a low cost carrier flying out of Dulles.  Maybe we will start to see some real competition for a change.

All prices shown are round-trip, and taxes and fees are supposed to be included (but may not be, so double check.)

The Flight Tonight! app displays both domestic and international destinations.

This app isn’t for everyone.  But if you are flexible, and looking for a cheap getaway, this Flight Tonight! arrays possible destinations in a convenient manner.

Who would have thought you could pick up last minute tickets to Tampa this cheap?
