The flight was super easy, on-time and very friendly staff on board.

The flight attendant on my flight was incredibly sweet and comforting

Just a relaxed experienced.

Sep 22, 2019

Seats were quite uncomfortable

Aug 7, 2019

I hope you all will consider adding leg room to flights. I was tucked behind first class so I had ample room. I will continue to fly Jet Blue as much as I can because of seat size and leg room (and I am a small person).

May 31, 2019

Everything was on time and quick. Nice sense of huddle by the staff and always with a smile

Dec 7, 2018

Great flight

Nov 15, 2018

JetBlue was very good about keeping me updated on delays, both via texts as well as in person in the waiting area.

Sep 28, 2018

Great service! I will definitely fly JetBlue again!

Cheap Flights from Washington DC to Gainesville

The Best DC Airports

Before you call airlines looking for flights from Washington, DC, you should check with Orbitz.com. The two major airports in DC are Washington Dulles International Airport and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. Alaska Airlines, US Airways, and Frontier Airlines handle domestic flights from Ronald Reagan, while Virgin America, ExpressJet Airlines, and Colgan Air operate out of Washington Dulles. Ronald Reagan is only three miles from the downtown area, and Washington Dulles is 26 miles from downtown.

Long-Term Parking Options

The five parking lots at Ronald Reagan offer daily and hourly parking rates, and the airport charges $20 per day for parking in the long-term lots. The economy lot only charges $12 per day, but this lot is open and uncovered. Washington Dulles has two long-term parking lots that charge $17 per day and one economy lot that charges $10 per day. For $30, you can use valet parking.

Public Transportation Choices

The Metrorail and Metrobus make at least one stop at each airport every day. The stops are clearly marked around the city, and you can find maps that help you find the correct line. Taxis are not as low cost as the public transportation options because the drivers charge a pickup fee, baggage fee, fee per mile, and a fee for any time that the driver must wait.

Places to Eat

Both airports offer a range of dining options. Washington Dulles is home to Dulles to Go, Five Guys, Subway, and Wendy's, while Ronald Reagan has Dunkin' Donuts, Euro Cafe, and Jerry's Subs & Pizza. Once you have something to eat, you can browse through the sales at some of the shops surrounding the restaurants.
