JetBlue Airways is launching twice-daily non-stop service on December 18 from Washington Reagan National Airport to Jacksonville in Florida.

The airline’s start date for its new Washington Reagan National-Jacksonville service is also the same day the airline begins non-stop service from Washington Reagan National Airport (IATA code DCA) to two other Florida destinations, Fort Myers (RSW) and West Palm Beach (PBI).
