Now you have yet another way to fly to Puerto Rico, and it’s a cheap one, too.

Avelo Airlines, a low-cost carrier, just announced that it is launching a new route connecting New Haven, Connecticut to San Juan, Puerto Rico. The new service will mark the airline’s first-ever route outside of continental US, and it is scheduled to start as early as November 15.

Travelers looking to head over to the island will also benefit from introductory fares if they book early enough. Right now, tickets start at $99 one-way, and passengers will be able to choose from two weekly flights on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

For now, it is still unclear whether Avelo will launch new service connecting other US cities to San Juan, The Points Guy reports.

For more information and to book your tickets, you can visit Avelo’s website.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
