JetBlue Airways is beginning service at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), its third airport in the Washington D.C. region, on November 1.

From DCA, JetBlue Airways will offer seven daily nonstop flights to Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS) and one daily nonstop flight each to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Orlando International Airport (MCO).


The airline will operate its services out of the historic, landmarked Terminal A complex at Washington National Airport.

Fares are available now at www.jetblue.com for $39 one-way (plus taxes and fees) between DCA and Boston, $59 one-way between DCA and Orlando and $69 one-way between DCA and Fort Lauderdale. Flights must be booked by May 5 for travel through December 15. Blackout dates may apply. JetBlue claims its everyday fares for its DCA-Boston flights will be up to 73 per cent lower than pre-JetBlue fares in the market.

Washington National will be JetBlue’s 62nd destination. The carrier also serves the region with flights to Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI). With the addition of DCA’s seven daily shuttle flights to Boston ― complementing five daily nonstop flights from BWI and six daily flights between Boston and IAD ― JetBlue says it will become the largest carrier for flights between Boston and the Washington D.C. region, offering 18 daily departures.
