New York’s ‘Hometown Airline’

As New York’s “Hometown Airline” for more than 24 years and the only major U.S. airline based in New York City, JetBlue’s expansion onto Long Island underscores its commitment to enhancing connectivity for New Yorkers. This new service will bolster JetBlue’s presence in the New York Metro area, complementing its existing operations at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), LaGuardia Airport (LGA), and Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR).

“Long Island is an integral part of the New York Metro area, and we are excited to bring our award-winning service to customers in this community,” said Dave Jehn, JetBlue’s vice president of network planning and airline partnerships in a media announcement. “The addition of Long Island MacArthur Airport to our network will offer more options and greater convenience for customers, and we are proud to provide new opportunities for more Long Islanders to experience our unique combination of low fares and great service.”

“It’s no secret that Long Island loves JetBlue, for years residents have asked, and we’ve been listening. As the Town Supervisor, I can say that we are thrilled to embark on this new partnership. We are committed to ensuring the success of our business partners at Long Island MacArthur Airport. Our airport is one of our region’s greatest economic assets, and JetBlue’s success at ISP will certainly enrich our community and beyond. Long Island cannot wait to open its doors to the visitors that will come to New York by way of ISP – Long Island’s hometown airport,” said Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter.

In addition to providing more travel options, JetBlue’s presence at Long Island MacArthur Airport is expected to contribute to the local economy through job creation and increased tourism. JetBlue currently employs more than 8,800 crewmembers in the state of New York.
