On September 10, 2011, eight members from our Ready Team – Crewmembers who volunteer their time and energy to be trained to provide care and support in emergency situations – were deployed for seven days to support the American Red Cross with numerous shelter operations that were opened up to house residents from the Binghamton, N.Y. area. These residents were forced to flee their homes that were destroyed by raging flood waters following Hurricane Irene. The team provided much-needed physical and emotional support during their 12 hour shifts while always keeping a smile on their faces. We salute our caring Ready Team Crewmembers for going above and beyond the call of duty to help those in need.
From now until September 6, JetBlue’s home Terminal 5 at New York’s JFK Airport will see on average 983 daily departing flights—and 1,003 flights during our highest peak travel days. Here are some sanity-saving tips to make traveling this summer a lot easier.
Hector and the San Juan-based ground operations team take pride in supporting a safe, on-time operation – and having some fun along the way.
We spent a day with our business partner, Poonai, who helps fuel our aircraft at JFK. Poonai and his team always make sure we have gas, which, in this case, is a good thing!
