JetBlue Airways will launch two new nonstop routes from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) to Fort Myers (RSW) and West Palm Beach (PBI) in Florida, beginning on 18 December and operating during the winter season.
The airline has also announced three new routes from DCA to Charleston, SC (CHS), Hartford, CT (BDL) and Nassau, Bahamas (NAS). Additionally, an extra daily flight will on the Tampa route will be added from 2 July.
“JetBlue’s first flight from Reagan National was only four years ago, but since then we have quickly grown to offer customers 24 daily flights, including the only nonstop to San Juan, Puerto Rico. By the end of this year we will have up to 30 daily nonstop flights,” explained Rob Land, JetBlue’s senior vice-president of government affairs and associate general counsel. “Reagan National Airport, traditionally known as a high fare airport, has greatly benefited from the JetBlue effect, as our new service has resulted in a significant reduction in fares in the markets we serve and substantial increase in travellers.”
