Marty St. George, JetBlue executive vice president and chief commercial officer, “JetBlue started building up our Boston operation from the moment we arrived more than fifteen years ago, and long before any other airline recognized the needs of New England’s travelers. The growth set for this year underscores our ongoing commitment to growth in Boston and introducing our award winning service to even more travelers in the years ahead.”
JetBlue first started service in Boston in January 2004, with 30 crewmembers, just one gate and 4,500 flights in the first year. Today, JetBlue carries more customers than any other airline in Boston, operates nearly 55,000 annual departures at Logan and offers nonstop service to more than 70 destinations throughout the U.S., Caribbean and Latin America. Boston is also home to some 3,400 crewmembers.
JetBlue has also built a portfolio of agreements with other international airlines at Logan that help connect customers to global destinations. Travelers can connect to cities around the world on JetBlue partners such as Emirates, EL AL, Aer Lingus, Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways.
JetBlue’s commitment to Boston extends well beyond its presence at Logan. JetBlue is a sponsor of the Boston Red Sox, the Boston Celtics, the Boston Bruins, the Boston Marathon, TD Garden and the New England Patriots. The local JetBlue team has also contributed thousands of hours to support numerous community organizations in the greater Boston area.
