JetBlue Files to Fly New Capital-to-Capital Services from Washington’s Reagan National Airport


Today we filed a “capital-to-capital” application with the United States Department of Transportation to receive four beyond-perimeter slot exemptions to provide new nonstop service from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport to two unique and sought-after destinations: San Juan, Puerto Rico and Austin, Texas.  

These proposed flights would be the only nonstop service between the U.S. capital’s preferred business airport and the capitals of Puerto Rico and Texas – both of which are located beyond the airport’s 1,250-mile perimeter and are among the 10 largest markets without nonstop air service to Reagan National.                                                                

JetBlue intends to offer one daily nonstop roundtrip flight to San Juan’s Luiz Munoz Marin International Airport, with connecting service to St. Thomas, the capital of the United States Virgin Islands, as well as one daily nonstop roundtrip flight to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. Both routes are supported by the two communities and their respective leaders.
