JetBlue Airways Corporation, or JetBlue, is New York’s Hometown Airline™. In 2013 JetBlue carried over 30 million passengers with an average of 800 daily flights and served 82 destinations in the United States, the Caribbean and Latin America.
JetBlue was incorporated in Delaware in August 1998, commenced service on February 11, 2000 and by the end of 2013 had grown to become the 5th largest passenger carrier in the U.S. based on revenue passenger miles.
The airline industry is ultra-competitive but we believe we have three primary advantages:
- Differentiated Product & Culture – JetBlue offers the most legroom in coach, free TV, snacks and Fly-Fi on its flights. Combined with award winning service from our dedicated employees, whom we refer to as Crewmembers, we believe we offer the most compelling product in the sky.
- Competitive Costs – Our cost structure is lower than our larger network competitors. This enables us to offer attractive fares, grow our network, and still focus on profitability and shareholder returns.
- High Value Geography – We operate from six focus cities in some of the largest travel markets in the United States. We plan to continue to grow our network, with most of our flights touching at least one of these focus cities.
