Republic Airlines starts flying Jackson-Washington Reagan for US Airways

US Airways (Phoenix) yesterday (March 4) launched new, daily nonstop service between Mississippi’s capital city, Jackson, and Washington, D.C.’s Reagan National Airport. The route is the only nonstop service linking the State of Mississippi to the nation’s capital.

Republic Airlines (2nd) (Indianapolis), a US Airways Express carrier, will operate daily service on dual-class 69-passenger Embraer ERJ 170 aircraft.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) granted US Airways temporary authority to operate the new service using two slot exemptions at Reagan National Airport. Today (March 5), US Airways will petition the Department of Transportation to grant it the authority to fly the route permanently.
