New York, NY (October 23, 2001) - While other airlines have cut flights between Washington, DC, and Florida by almost half in the past month, JetBlue Airways will introduce new twice-daily service between Washington Dulles and Fort Lauderdale, the only nonstop service between the two airports, starting November 28.
JetBlue is offering an introductory sale fare for the new service starting at just $49 each way if purchased by November 30 for travel completed by December 15. Regular fares will range from $79* to $199* each way, which is up to 71% less than equivalent fares of other airlines serving the route nonstop from other Washington airports. All fares, including introductory fares, will be discounted $5 each way if booked online by November 30 via JetBlue's web site, www.jetblue.com.
JetBlue had planned to commence daily flights from Washington/Dulles to LA/Long Beach and SF/Oakland, CA, on October 8 but that service will now commence in Spring, 2002.
"The new service to Florida has not replaced the west coast service which will still be introduced in the Spring," said David Neeleman, CEO of JetBlue. "But with so many flights to Florida being cut this winter, we wanted to introduce the Fort Lauderdale service immediately to provide travelers with flights for the holidays."
The airline's daily schedule will be:
Washington/Dulles (IAD) to Fort Lauderdale (FLL) Fort Lauderdale to Washington/Dulles
Depart - Arrive Depart - Arrive
10:40am - 1:20pm 7:20am - 9:50am
