JetBlue Airways announces new nonstop service from Bradley to DC this summer; sales fare available today

3/6/2014

JetBlue Airways today announced plans to expand its operation at Bradley International Airport with new nonstop service to Washington, D.C. this summer.

Beginning June 19 of this year, JetBlue plans to offer two conveniently timed daily flights to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), the capital's popular downtown airport.

Schedule for JetBlue's New Daily Service to Washington:

Hartford (BDL) - Washington (DCA) DCA - BDL
6:35 a.m. - 7:59 a.m. 09:25 a.m. - 10:46 a.m.
6:30 p.m. - 7:54 p.m. 07:25 p.m. - 08:50 p.m.

 

To celebrate its growth, JetBlue is offering introductory sale fares as low as $30(a) one-way, including taxes and fees, between Hartford and Washington (DCA) for mid-week travel between June 24 and July 30. These special fares are available for purchase today only, March 6.

With the addition of flights to Washington, JetBlue will soon offer Bradley fliers nine daily departures, including service to Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood, Fort Myers, Orlando, Tampa, West Palm Beach, and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

"The Hartford market has truly embraced JetBlue and we think this new Washington service will be another popular route for local fliers, especially with sale fares starting at just $30 one-way." said Scott Laurence, the airline's vice president of network planning. "This summer, JetBlue will offer nine daily flights from Bradley, and we hope to keep growing that presence in the years ahead with the support of the local community."

"Whenever one of Bradley Airport's major carriers expands their travel options, it's great news for customers, our tourism sector and the regional economy," said Gov. Dannel P. Malloy. "JetBlue continues to be a great partner to the Connecticut Airport Authority and my administration as we make strides to promote Bradley as a more accessible, attractive regional alternative to travelers."

"At a time when mergers and consolidations have resulted in fewer and fewer choices for air travelers, JetBlue's new daily flights from Bradley to Washington will result in healthy competition, lowering fares and improving quality for passengers," said U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.). "Bradley is a vital transportation hub for the state and region, and JetBlue is smart to continue their investment here."

"The Connecticut Airport Authority is excited that our partners at JetBlue continue to expand their presence here at Bradley International Airport," said Kevin A. Dillon, A.A.E., executive director of the Connecticut Airport Authority (CAA). "These new flights continue to enhance Bradley's overall route structure as Washington, D.C. is an important destination for customers travelling for business as well as for pleasure."

"We continue to be encouraged by JetBlue's investment in Bradley and the Connecticut Airport Authority," said Mary Ellen Jones, CAA Chair. "Whenever we can expand air service options for our customers, everyone profits, most especially our state economy."

Hartford is one of a handful of new destinations JetBlue is adding at Reagan National this year, following its recent acquisition of additional take-off and landing rights through the American Airlines-US Airways divestiture proceedings. Other new DCA destinations announced today are Charleston, S.C., and Nassau, Bahamas (subject receipt of government operating authority). JetBlue is also expanding its existing service between Washington and Tampa, Fla. Additional new routes from Washington will be announced later this year.
