The deal
Delta Airlines just announced new daily service to Bermuda and Haiti from New York City, and to celebrate, the airline is offering introductory fares as low as $129 each way. These two new routes mark the first Delta service to Haiti since the 1950s, and a return of the Bermuda route following its cancellation last year due to rising fuel costs.

Service from JFK airport to Port-au-Prince starts June 20, and LaGuardia to Bermuda service begins May 22. These low early-bird introductory fares are valid for travel to Bermuda from May 22 through July 15, and to Haiti from June 20 through July 31 — just in time for summer. This offer ends as soon as Feb. 23

The dollars
Round-trip purchase is required to take advantage of this offer. A sample search of the JFK to Haiti route turned up total round-trip fares of $335, with taxes and fees. A search of the LaGuardia to Bermuda route turned up a fare of $352.

The catch
In order to find these low fares, you must search Delta.com by schedule using the "full-search options," and select the nonstop service. Searching Delta.com by price will display stopover flights that do not reflect the sale fare.
