NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/16/15 -- JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU) today announced Blue Inc., a unique online booking tool which allows small and mid-sized businesses to manage their corporate travel. Blue Inc. offers travelers greater convenience at a reasonable price point, making business travel easy. Businesses can sign up for Blue Inc. for free at www.jetblue.com/blueinc and then invite employees to manage their own corporate travel (a).
The Blue Inc. web portal offers:
- Easy accessibility from any device
- A streamlined experience for corporate travel managers and business travelers
- The ability to manage bookings and store credit cards
- Access for administrators to help manage bookings
- The opportunity for multiple travelers to be booked at once for team travel, with personalized itineraries and separate payment options for each traveler, if needed
- TrueBlue points for both the company and traveler
"Traditionally, business travel tools have been very expensive and were reserved for big businesses with huge travel budgets. Small or mid-sized businesses were left to book through traditional consumer channels without any of the benefits of a corporate booking tool," said Dennis Corrigan, vice president, sales and revenue management, JetBlue Airways. "We developed Blue Inc. with those businesses in mind. With Blue Inc. smaller companies can now manage their travel with JetBlue as efficiently as larger businesses, all while being rewarded along with their travelers."
Blue Inc. also includes TrueBlue for Businesses -- a feature that rewards both companies and business travelers with loyalty points. Companies will earn three loyalty points per dollar spent on JetBlue flights for employee travel booked through the portal. Businesses can then grant access to redeem these points to registered travelers within the company. Additionally, travelers earn six TrueBlue points per dollar spent on JetBlue flights booked through Blue Inc. for their individual TrueBlue accounts by integrating their existing TrueBlue accounts.
With JetBlue's TrueBlue loyalty program, there are no blackout dates, all seats are available (b), and points never expire. With a range of TrueBlue benefits, JetBlue consistently delivers on its promise to provide a loyalty program that rewards all customers, regardless of their travel frequency. JetBlue's most loyal customers can qualify for Mosaic, which means more points, benefits and exclusive offers, all from flying 30 segments plus 12,000 base flight points, or by earning 15,000 base flight points within a calendar year (c).
