Jacksonville marks the sixth new destination from DCA to be launched this year. On June 19, JetBlue launched nonstop service to Charleston, SC (CHS), Hartford, Conn. (BDL), and Nassau, Bahamas (NAS).

"Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport is a vital part of the JetBlue network and we are pleased to continue to grow our presence here. Besides easier access to JetBlue flights from the heart of the region, customers are enjoying our award-winning customer service and low fares.

JetBlue has successfully carved out a niche among competitors by focusing on serving the customer who is under-served by other airlines and by delivering unparalleled value to travelers with its core product offerings. JetBlue has also been cited by an independent study from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as the low-cost carrier that lowered fares the most when it began service in a new U.S. market in 2012. The JetBlue Effect, MIT says, lowered fare $32 one way on average (b).
