JetBlue Now Flying Out of Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C.

JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq: JBLU) today proudly brings its long-anticipated service and low fares to Ronald Reagan National Airport (DCA), its third airport in the Baltimore-Washington region. JetBlue is now offering seven daily nonstop flights to Boston*s Logan International Airport (BOS) and one daily nonstop flight each to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and Orlando International Airport (MCO).

Since JetBlue announced plans to serve the Boston-Ronald Reagan National market lowest fare walk-up have dropped 60%.

National Airport is JetBlue*s 62nd destination. The carrier also serves the region with service from Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI). With the addition of seven daily flights from National to Boston - complementing the five daily nonstop flights currently offered to Boston from BWI and the six daily flights it available to Boston from Dulles - JetBlue is now the largest carrier for flights between Boston and the Baltimore-Washington region, with 18 conveniently-timed departures each business day.

Furthermore, JetBlue, and the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA), operators of National Airport, have joined together to invest in a substantial renovation of Terminal A that includes many environmental considerations such as:

• JetBlue*s ticket and gate counters are made entirely of recycled products;

• Solar panels have been installed on the roof of the ticketing lobby to power large ceiling fans, reducing energy usage by reducing heating/cooling and returning electricity to the grid;

• Lighting installed in the lobby, some powered by solar panels, are also lit by highly energy efficient LED light bulbs which, combined with the natural light from the terminal*s skylights, reduce energy consumption;

• Most of the new baggage system installed in this terminal for JetBlue*s start-up is built from recycled materials.

**We*re thrilled to begin our low fare service at National Airport, with a frequent schedule of flights to Boston and new options to Florida with connections to the Caribbean,** said Rob Land, Senior Vice president of Government Affairs and Associate General Counsel for JetBlue. **JetBlue is delighted to offer more non-stop options to our customers, complete with the most legroom in coach and 36 channels of free personal seatback TV*s so they won*t miss a beat, whether it*s watching news from the Hill or catching the latest game while in-flight, and conveniently flying from only a few blocks away from downtown.**

**JetBlue has been a valuable member of our airline family at Washington Dulles International Airport for some time, and we are happy to welcome them to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport as well, **said Lynn Hampton, President and CEO of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. **Once again, JetBlue has expanded its service from Boston Logan International Airport with the addition of DCA Logan*s second largest destination,** said Ed Freni, Massport Director of Aviation. **The new Washington service makes Jet Blue the number one carrier at Logan, with 40 destinations, and more to come,** he added.
