- JetBlue Airways expanded its network with three new routes launched from Washington Reagan, VA (DCA) on 19 June, all of which are operated by its 100-seat E190s. Firstly, the US carrier launched twice-daily flights to Charleston, SC (CHS), a sector which is already flown by US Airways with 34 weekly flights. Secondly, it inaugurated the 504-kilometre sector to Hartford, CT (BDL) with twice-daily services as well. This airport pair is currently operated by US Airways (42). Lastly, JetBlue commenced daily flights to Nassau (NAS). The 1,532-kilometre sector to the capital and largest city of the Bahamas will face direct competition from US Airways’ twice-weekly operations.
