Did TWA Fly New York-Baltimore In 1963?

I was watching the season premiere of Mad Men last night, and I noticed that two characters flew from New York (unspecified airport) to Baltimore aboard a jet aircraft (presumably 707). The passengers were served by a female FA in a blue suit. Later, it is revealed that the airline was TWA (the FA drops a pin).
Being the nitpicker I am, I couldn't help but wonder if any of this was accurate. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!

They flew EWR-BWI in 1962, so no reason not to believe they did in 1963.

I remember EWR-BWI as late as '64-65....watching them leave from the old FANTASTIC outdoor deck at EWR....

Throughout 1963 they had flight 61 EWR-BAL-LAX-SFO, a 707-120B. In November they added an 880 EWR-BAL. No TWA jet or prop flights LGA-BAL or IDL-BAL.

It's so telling that these timetables look exactly like train timetables...just many of the routes were like train routes (never overflying a city but dropping in to pick up/drop off). My how times have changed. Typical passengers today would have a coronary if they had to take off and land as many times as you did back then.
