The recent merger of American Airlines and US Airways created openings at Washington National that JetBlue was able to acquire.
“In a competitive airline market, it is a huge vote of confidence that JetBlue selected Charleston International for two of the 12 flight slots it acquired at Washington National,” Airports Director Paul Campbell Jr. said in a news release. “It’s also great news for our passengers — there are now more opportunities to fly to D.C.”
With the addition of the D.C. flights, JetBlue will soon offer Charleston travelers five daily departures, including two daily flights to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and one daily flight to Boston Logan International Airport.
The low-cost carrier started operating at the Charleston airport in February 2013.
