NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU) today issued the following statement on the U.S.
Department of Transportation’s Show Cause Order in the matter of
granting antitrust immunity for the proposed Aeromexico/Delta Air Lines
“JetBlue commends the DOT for noting that in the increasingly
consolidated airline industry where fewer and larger players dominate
the landscape, only important protections such as ensuring airport
access and term limits on immunity from antitrust laws will allow small
but vital competitors like JetBlue to continue offering low fares and
protecting the interests of consumers,” said James Hnat, Executive Vice
President and General Counsel.
JetBlue is New York's Hometown Airline®, and a leading carrier
in Boston, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, Los Angeles (Long Beach), Orlando,
and San Juan. JetBlue carries more than 35 million customers a year to
98 cities in the U.S., Caribbean, and Latin America with an average of
925 daily flights. For more information please visit jetblue.com.
