Statement Regarding Outcome of Unionization Election Among Pilots

Today we issued the following statement from our President and CEO Dave Barger reacting to the unionization vote among our 2,100 pilots, in which the majority voted to retain their direct relationship with us:

“I would like to thank all JetBlue pilots for their thoughtful consideration of the issues in this campaign, and for electing to retain and expand their direct relationship with the company.  Now that the election is concluded, I look forward to getting back to the business of truly reinventing the traditional airline management-labor relationship, as only JetBlue can.”

JetBlue is the only major U.S.-based airline that is completely union-free.
