JetBlue Paints Aircraft In Homage To The New York Jets

October 17, 2010 - Hometown airline and fan-favorite JetBlue Airways turned its classic blue livery green on its first specially painted Airbus A320 aircraft in honor of the New York Jets on its turf at Hangar 81 at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport.   

The newly branded aircraft was revealed by CEO Dave Barger and NY Jets Chairman and CEO Woody Johnson, together with Curtis Martin, Emerson Boozer and other Jets alumni players, the Jets Flight Crew and hundreds of the airline's crewmembers. "The synergies between the Jets and JetBlue are core to what it means to be a part of this great city," said JetBlue CEO Dave Barger.   

 

"We play in the same backyard, with New York as our home turf.  We have diverse, loyal fans that expect more of us than the other guys and we deliver on our brand promise. We couldn't think of a better way to solidify this bond, as the largest domestic airline at JFK Airport and the official airline partner of the NY Jets than to combine our brands in a unique and integrated way by turning our classic livery from blue to green! When the Jets win the Super Bowl this February, we look forward to partnering with MasterCard and rewarding our New York area customers with our special MasterCard promotion!" 

"When we partnered with JetBlue, we were excited about their commitment and desire to be creative and innovative," said Jets Chairman and CEO Woody Johnson. "This plane takes our partnership to a new level and new heights, both literally and figuratively. We are looking forward to not only seeing our Jets jet in the skies around the New York region, but across the country and around the globe." 

Designed by T.J. McCormick, JetBlue's general manager of brand design, the Airbus A320 interchanges blue for green, featuring a green belly, green wing tips and a green tail, with large green JETS lettering across the fuselage and a football helmet towards the rear of the aircraft.  In place of a characteristic 'blue' name featured under the cockpit of each aircraft, this plane features the airline's co-branded trademark with New York State's iconic tourism campaign and logo, I LOVE NEW YORK, solidifying the carrier's status as the official hometown airline of New York.
