JetBlue to Link Reagan National with Jacksonville, Florida
JetBlue Airways announced it will begin new, non-stop service between Washington, D.C. and Jacksonville, Florida on December 18. The service will operate twice daily.
Flights from Washington, D.C. will depart Reagan National Airport at 9:25 a.m. and 4:10 p.m. and arrive at Jacksonville International Airport at 11:25 a.m. and 6:09 p.m., respectively. From Jacksonville, flights will depart at 9:10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., and will arrive in the nation’s capital at 10:59 a.m. and 2:21 p.m.
This past June, JetBlue began new service from Reagan National to Charleston, South Carolina; Hartford, Connecticut; and Nassau, Bahamas. Additionally, the carrier plans to begin service from Washington Reagan to two other Florida destinations, Fort Myers and West Palm Beach, also on December 18.
The new routes are made possible due to the slots that the airline acquired from American Airlines after its merger with US Airways in December. The combined airline, now the world’s largest, was required to divest numerous slots as part of a deal to gain approval for the merger from the Department of Justice.
