JetBlue Continues to Expand at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport

Announces New Routes From DCA to Fort Myers and West Palm Beach; New Route Launches Today and More Flights to Be Announced

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - June 19, 2014) - JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU) today announces two new nonstop routes from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) to Fort Myers (RSW) and West Palm Beach (PBI) in Florida. The two routes will launch on December 18, 2014 and operate during the winter season. The airline today also launches three new routes from DCA to Charleston, SC (CHS), Hartford, Conn. (BDL) and Nassau, Bahamas (NAS). Additionally, JetBlue will boost its existing service to Tampa, Fla., with a second daily flight effective July 2, 2014.

Special introductory fares are available today through June 20, 2014, starting at $84 one way to Fort Myers and $94 one way to West Palm Beach for travel between January 6 and February 11, 2015 (a), excluding Fridays and Sundays.

The new routes and increased frequency follow the allocation of 12 slot pairs to JetBlue by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) as a result of divestitures from the American Airlines-US Airways merger. More flights will be announced this summer as JetBlue continues to ramp up its presence at DCA.

"JetBlue's first flight from Reagan National was only four years ago, but since then, with our award-winning customer service, 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. 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 travelers," said Rob Land, JetBlue's Senior Vice President of Government Affairs and Associate General Counsel.

JetBlue entered the Reagan National market in 2010, becoming the airline's 62nddestination. With the three new routes launched today, the airline now offers 24 daily flights, with service to Boston, Charleston, Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood, Hartford, Nassau, Orlando and Tampa, as well as San Juan, Puerto Rico. New service to Ft Myers and West Palm Beach will both launch on December 18, 2014. JetBlue will operate up to 30 roundtrips per day at DCA by the end of 2014.

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
