JetBlue Airways has added three nonstop routes from Washington, DC, to Florida, it announced this month. The flights, from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) to Fort Myers (RSW), Jacksonville (JAX), and West Palm Beach (PBI), FL, commenced on Dec. 18.

"Washington has been a major focus of investment and growth for JetBlue in recent years, and we are pleased to now fly our full schedule of 30 daily roundtrips," Rob Land, JetBlue's senior vice president of government affairs and associate general counsel, said in a statement. "Not only are we bringing lower and more reasonable fares to the heart of DC, we are also providing customers with our award-winning service, proving the JetBlue effect is a true win-win for the public."

This year, JetBlue has significantly increased its presence at DCA, adding a total of six routes and increasing frequencies in existing markets. Earlier this year, flights to Charleston, SC (CHS), Hartford, CT (BDL), and Nassau, Bahamas (NAS) were launched, and service to Tampa, FL (TPA), was boosted with a second daily flight.

"We welcome JetBlue's new nonstop flights to these popular Florida destinations," said Jack Potter, president and CEO of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. "The expanded service further enhances the travel experience for our passengers."
