As previously reported, Skybus was planning a new route to Florida. But what we didn’t know was that they were also planning three other new flights around the country. Anyone jump on any of these new cheap tickets?

THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
Starting today, Columbus travelers bound for Atlanta, New Orleans and Fort Myers, Fla., will have a chance to book tickets costing as little as $10 on Skybus Airlines.
In keeping with Skybus’ penchant for flying to cheaper and less crowded airports, those flights will actually land in Chattanooga, Tenn.; Biloxi, Miss.; and Punta Gorda, Fla.
Skybus will begin selling tickets to those airports and to Milwaukee, the one major city airport on the list of new destinations, starting at 6 a.m. today on Skybus.com.
Service on these new routes will begin Dec. 5; in addition, a second daily flight to St. Augustine, Fla., a current Skybus destination, will begin Dec. 17.
The additions will bring to 15 the number of cities Skybus serves from Port Columbus.
