Gov. Dannel P. Malloy flew roundtrip between Bradley International Airport and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport on June 19 to celebrate the inaugural flights in JetBlue Airways expanded service at BDL and DCA.
With the addition of flights to Washington, JetBlue offers Bradley fliers nine daily departures, including service to Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood, Fort Myers, Orlando, Tampa, West Palm Beach, and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Malloy took the 6:35 a.m. flight from Bradley and participated in a new conference in Washington before retuning. Besides the Bradley flights, JetBlue also added routes to DCA from Charleston, South Carolina, and Nassau, Bahamas.
The governor, in remarks in Washington, said JetBlue has been a huge success in Connecticut, and welcomed the opportunity to “sample the product.”
U.S. Rep. John Larson, of the 1st District, also participated in the June 19 news conference.
JetBlue also announced two new nonstop routes from DCA — to Fort Myers and West Palm Beach — that will launch Dec. 18.
The new routes and increased frequency follow the allocation of 12 slot pairs to JetBlue by the U.S. Department of Justice as a result of divestitures from the American Airlines-US Airways merger.
JetBlue’s new flights are being operated with the 100-seat Embraer 190 jet.
