If you’ve been watching the news lately, you’ve probably heard the word “sequestration” quite a bit. The FAA has cut staffing at Air Traffic Control facilities as a result of the government budget sequester, and the first round of these cuts went into effect on Sunday. With fewer employees to manage traffic in and around airports, delays are possible, even on perfectly sunny, blue sky days.
We regret any inconvenience as a result of sequestration. As always, our focus will be on running as safe and efficient an operation as possible for our customers. We recommend checking the status of your JetBlue flights at jetblue.com.
We’ll continue to keep you informed as we address this ongoing operational impact. Stay tuned!
