JetBlue to launch service at Washington's Reagan
NEW YORK - March 31, 2010 -- JetBlue says it will launch service at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in November.
The airline, based in Forest Hills, N.Y., said Wednesday it will initially offer at least eight daily departures from Reagan to East Coast cities. The carrier already operates in the two other Washington D.C.-area airports, Washington Dulles International Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
JetBlue's access to Reagan National is part of an agreement with American Airlines to be announced Wednesday. Under the deal, JetBlue will also acquire takeoff and landing slots for more daily service at Westchester County Airport in White Plains, N.Y.
The Reagan service requires approval by the Department of Transportation.
