JetBlue dis­con­tin­u­ing ser­vice from Dulles

Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - BUSINESS - — From staff and wire re­ports

Be­gin­ning in Jan­uary,

JetBlue will no longer of­fer Wash­ing­ton-area ser­vice at Dulles In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

The change means that start­ing Jan. 8, trav­el­ers will have to find other air­lines in or­der to fly to Lo­gan and John F. Kennedy in­ter­na­tional air­ports in Bos­ton and New York City. JetBlue had of­fered up to three daily flights from Dulles to each city.

The elim­i­na­tion of the daily flights is a blow for Dulles, where of­fi­cials have strug­gled to in­crease pas­sen­ger traf­fic.

This month, ul­tra low­cost car­rier Primera Air, which of­fered ser­vice to Lon­don’s Stansted Air­port, de­clared bank­ruptcy. The air­port had only re­cently launched ser­vice at Dulles.
