JetBlue to arrive in Charleston

Yet another airline has decided to bring its wings into Charleston. JetBlue, a low-cost airline with a hub at JFK Airport in Queens, has decided to come to the Lowcountry.

Warren Wise of the Post and Courier had the scoop and posted it on his Twitter feed late Tuesday night.

An announcement will occur today (Wednesday) at 3 p.m. at the Charleston International Airport.

Two flights a day will be offered to JFK, and one flight to Logan Airport in Boston starting February 28, 2013.

Here is the link from the Post and Courier:

The airline has 71 destinations right now all over the United States, and to the Caribbean, The Bahamas, Bermuda, Barbados, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Mexico and Puerto Rico.

JetBlue flies 100-150 seat jets to all of its destinations. One of the unique features of its planes is that it provides satellite TV service to every seat. Charleston has been courting the airline for 2 1/2 years.
