Southwest and JetBlue to offer cheap flights from Regan National Airport

It hasn’t always been easy finding affordable flights from Reagan National Airport, but that may be about to change. JetBlue and Southwest Airlines may soon offer cheap flights from the airport.

JetBlue has received the rights to add 12 round-trip flights per day, bringing its total to 30 slots, and Southwest will add 27 daily flights, bringing its total to 44. This will make the popular yet previously expensive airport more affordable to fly out of for travelers.

Neither carrier has announced schedules or destinations. These changes are due to the merger between US Airways and American Airlines and the resulting Justice Department ruling that stated that American must give up a minimum of 104 slots at Reagan.

The Justice Department has yet to approve the proposed changes by JetBlue and Southwest.
