Who We Are

When JetBlue first took flight in February 2000, it was founded on the idea of bringing humanity back to air travel. Twenty years later, we still put people at the center of everything we do as we inspire humanity.

But before we even had aircraft to fly, our founders chose five values to guide us – they’re who we are, what we stand for and what we’ll never compromise on. Our values of safety, caring, integrity, passion and fun inspire our culture and guide the decisions that we make every day.

A lot has happened in the past two decades! We’ve gone international, added different aircraft to our fleet, installed fleet-wide Fly-Fi®, introduced our premium travel experience Mint®, launched two innovative subsidiaries (JetBlue Technology Ventures and JetBlue Travel Products) and most recently announced our European debut (landing in London in 2021). We have a lot to be proud of and even more to look forward to!

Travel Perks

We know this is what you really want to know about – standby travel is one of the most exciting perks of working in the aviation industry! Our crewmembers enjoy the benefit of free standby travel on JetBlue, as well as reduced-rate standby travel on other select airlines. This unique industry-wide privilege enables our crewmembers to experience destinations across our network and all over the world. Personally, we think it’s the best work perk ever and we have a feeling that you’ll enjoy too. 

Of course, we wouldn’t be who we are without our 22,000 crewmembers – they’re the heart of our brand and our greatest asset. Together, we deliver the JetBlue experience to more than 40 million customers each year to nearly 100 cities in the U.S., Caribbean, and Latin America. We’re proud to be New York's Hometown Airline®, and a leading carrier in Boston, Fort Lauderdale - Hollywood, Los Angeles (Long Beach), Orlando, and San Juan.
