JetBlue Has D.C. Thinking About Summer With New Nantucket Service

Seasonal Flights From Reagan National to Popular New England Island Start in June

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - February 19, 2015) - JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU) today encouraged winter-weary Washingtonians to think about summer vacation when the airline announced new seasonal service from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) to Nantucket, Mass.

Nantucket marks the 12th non-stop destination from Reagan National, where JetBlue has steadily increased its presence since it started serving the close-in Washington airport in 2010.

"Customers in the D.C.-area love the convenience of this airport, and now we will provide them with a direct route to one of the most popular summer destinations in the Northeast."
