JetBlue Airways to drop five routes in order to redeploy aircraft on new routes to Washington’s Reagan National Airport

JetBlue Airways (New York) as we previously reported, was awarded a package of 12 more slot pairs at the slot-controlled Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA).

As a result, JetBlue is forced to move aircraft from underperforming routes to these new DCA routes. This will be accomplished by ending service in the following markets:

West Palm Beach – San Juan: last flight both directions is June 16

San Francisco – Austin: last flight is June 15, Austin – San Francisco: last flight is June 16

Oakland – Washington (Dulles): last flight is June 15, Washington (Dulles) – Oakland: last flight is June 16

Long Beach – Washington (Dulles): last flight is September 1, Washington (Dulles) – Long Beach: last flight is Sept. 2

Buffalo – Fort Myers: this seasonal market will not resume in November

Customers with reservations for these affected flights after the last operating date will be contacted with the option to be reaccommodated on other JetBlue flights or to cancel their reservation and receive a full refund.
