JetBlue launched its daily nonstop service between Charleston International Airport and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport today and also added a third daily nonstop flight between Charleston and Washington’s Reagan National Airport.
JetBlue announced the additional flight to Washington’s Reagan airport, which will begin May 4, during an event celebrating the new Florida flight. The 105-minute flight between Charleston and Fort Lauderdale, Fla., was announced in July. Passengers will fly on JetBlue’s Embraer 190 aircraft, which seats 100 passengers. The launch of JetBlue’s service to Fort Lauderdale gives travelers access to the airline’s gateway to the Caribbean and Central America, the airport said in a news release.
Last week, the airline also announced plans to add a second daily flight between Charleston and Boston, beginning April 4. JetBlue now flies nonstop from Charleston to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, Boston’s Logan International Airport, Washington’s Reagan airport and the Fort Lauderdale, Fla., airport with six daily arrivals and six daily departures.
JetBlue began service in Charleston in 2013. Charleston International Airport now flies to 23 airports and 18 cities in the United States with Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, JetBlue Airlines, Silver Airways, Southwest Airlines and United Airlines.
Alaska Airlines launched the airport’s first transcontinental flight on Monday, connecting Charleston and Seattle with a nonstop flight four days a week.
