65 New Ways to Get Away This Season

It's that time again. As the first below–freezing days start rolling in and the sidewalk musician who plays Christmas carols on the pan flute establishes his month–long post just below my office window, thoughts of escape dance in my head. Fortunately, there are a slew of new routes to consider, as airlines ramp up their winter service. Some will help you save money, and some will help you save time—both of which we could all use a little more of this time of year.

[These results were compiled from Jaunted.com, airlineroute.net, and the airlines' own web sites and announcements—and all are subject to change. Check the airlines' websites for the latest updates.]
