JetBlue currently flies between Charleston International Airport and Washington’s Reagan National Airport, New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Boston’s Logan International Airport. The carrier announced earlier this year that it will begin nonstop service between Charleston and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida on Nov. 19.
Dan Blumenstock, chairman of the Charleston Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, said Boston is a priority market for the region’s hospitality industry.
“Travelers from New England not only expect authenticity, refined cuisine and quality accommodation, they actually demand it,” Blumenstock said in the news release. “The new service is a validation that the welcoming people of Charleston are getting things done in a manner that is applauded by discerning travelers.”
Charleston County Aviation Authority CEO and Executive Director Sen. Paul Campbell said the airport’s $199 million expansion project will be complete in the coming months.
“The additional modernized space allows our existing carriers to expand, and it is certainly gratifying to see JetBlue move so quickly in order to take advantage of the new opportunity of growth at CHS,” Campbell said in the news release.
