Update on Hurricane Sandy and Our Operating Plans


Hurricane Sandy is on track to impact air travel over the next several days in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. In New York, public transportation will cease at 7 p.m. ET today, and we’re planning our last departure by midnight. The JFK AirTrain will close at 10 p.m. and shuttle buses will run in its place. High winds are no bueno for flying machines, so we are sheltering our aircraft in other cities – see the list below. Learn more about our operating plans around Hurricane Sandy and how you can prepare.

Airports around the country where all of our planes have been repositioned

Remember to check the status of your flight before heading to the airport (even if you’re in a city that might not be impacted by the storm, your plane or crew might have been), and check back here on BlueTales and on jetblue.com for the latest news and operational updates. You will be notified if your flight is cancelled. Also, learn more about the fee waivers that we’re offering (we just updated the rebooking until through November 10). You can cancel or rebook your trip without incurring any fees if you’re flying to/from the listed cities.

Be sure to also tune in to NYC.gov for information about the storm and the evacuation zones, and follow @MikeBloomberg and @GovChristie.

Stay safe and dry!
