“Los Angeles service from Charleston International Airport has been a key strategic objective for Team CHS,” Charleston County Aviation Authority CEO Elliott Summey said. “JetBlue’s new service will allow both business and leisure travelers convenient access to and from one of the most important airport gateways to the world. We are obviously delighted with this milestone addition of air service for the region.”

“Being able to fly nonstop from LAX to Charleston will turn Californians' interest into action," she said. “There is no doubt that the new service will provide a timely boost as our visitor industry continues its economic rebound. And since LAX is our largest market without direct service, we share JetBlue’s confidence in the long-term success of this exciting new route. Our work toward its success begins today.”

“We are excited to expand our Charleston service with a new direct flight to LAX. Since beginning flights to Charleston, we’ve seen an extraordinary level of community support that has allowed us to continually expand” JetBlue Head of Revenue and Planning Scott Laurence said. “This new addition furthers our commitment to our Charleston customers, and gives more customers our award-winning service, to more of the destinations we know they want to fly.”
