We depend on natural resources and a healthy environment to keep our business running smoothly. Natural resources are essential for us to fly, and tourism relies on having beautiful, natural and preserved destinations for our customers to visit. Therefore we take an active approach to shrinking our greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint, reducing pollution and waste.
ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY It’s important to have a frank discussion about climate change and our business.
Too often airports are concrete jungles. We don’t think people should be detached from nature just because they are waiting for a flight.
In 2015, JetBlue revealed a first-of-itskind 24,000 square foot airport farm at JFK’s Terminal 5 (T5). The project is a partnership with nonprofit partner GrowNYC to promote local agriculture and enrich the airport customer experience with green space.
We remember what it’s like to be a small business and know how difficult it can be to get through the door at a big company. In 2015, we launched the BlueBud (Buddies + Budding New Companies) mentoring program to help small food start-ups from New York grow.
We didn’t earn our reputation for exceptional service overnight. Since our first flight, we have worked every day to gain the loyalty and trust of our customers, one interaction at a time. For 12 years in a row, JetBlue has been ranked “Highest in Customer Satisfaction among Low-Cost Carriers in North America” by J.D. Power and Associates according to their North America Airline Satisfaction Study.

JetBlue customers come from different backgrounds and life experiences. A diverse workforce helps us to better understand and respond to their needs. In 2015, we reaffirmed our commitment to recognize the many aspects of diversity at JetBlue. We held activities throughout the year including our annual Respectful Workplace Week, diversity trainings for JetBlue leadership and celebration of traditional heritage and awareness months.
On May 23, JetBlue and the British Metropolitan Police hosted the seventh annual J-A-C-K Foundation Plane Pull at JFK Airport.
