JetBlue's flights from Charleston will be serviced by 100-seat Embraer E190 jets, which have all leather seating and no middle seat configuration. With JetBlue, the first-checked bag is free and passengers are welcome to enjoy an unlimited assortment of name brand snacks and drinks as well as more than 140 channels of complimentary live television and radio on personal seatback screens. JetBlue offers more legroom than any other carrier in coach.

“Welcoming JetBlue to the Charleston area is a huge contribution toward future economic growth,” says S.C. Speaker of the House Bobby Harrell, who credits the cooperative efforts of the Charleston International Airport, Charleston Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, Charleston Regional Development Alliance and Charleston Metro Chamber with landing the new air service.

The mission of the Charleston Area Convention & Visitors Bureau is to unify and lead the local travel industry in marketing the Charleston area as an individual, meeting, incentive and group destination to both the domestic and international markets.
