JetBlue (Nasdaq:JBLU), New York´s Hometown AirlineÂ®, and the #1 carrier at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, has announced it has selected Fort Lauderdale as the new home for its JetBlue Travel Products subsidiary, the company said.
JetBlue Travel Products consists of the JetBlue Vacations brand and other non-air travel products including travel insurance, cruises, car rentals and more.
Fort Lauderdale is one of JetBlue´s six focus cities. As the JetBlue Travel Products subsidiary grows, the move to South Florida places the subsidiary right at the center of the travel and tourism industry. Fort Lauderdale is a major center of operations for JetBlue´s international flights to and from the Caribbean and Latin America, two regions which now account for one-third of the airline´s network. Today the airline serves 59 destinations from Fort Lauderdale and is growing toward 140 daily departures.
JetBlue Airways Corp. will continue to be based in New York City. By locating the subsidiary and the core airline teams separately but highly connected, each can focus on successfully delivering the best customer experience and creating value for owners while continuing to collaborate on future products that only JetBlue can offer.
JetBlue is New York´s Hometown AirlineÂ®, and a carrier in Boston, Fort Lauderdale – Hollywood, Los Angeles (Long Beach), Orlando, and San Juan. JetBlue carries more than 40 million customers a year to 102 cities in the US, Caribbean, and Latin America with an average of 1,000 daily flights. For more information, visit www.jetblue.com.
