JetBlue is working hard to make the most of its base in one of the world's largest travel hubs by creating a top-notch terminal at JFK and honoring the locals that make its operations possible.
The jet is painted bright red with the FDNY shield on its tail. It will be used on routes throughout JetBlue’s network of 79 cities.
JetBlue is the only major airline based in New York and has worked closely with the FDNY’s non-profit foundation. JetBlue’s release today says that 250 crew members are retired FDNY members, and that the airline has donated more than 40 round-trip flights for firefighters to help other regions.
The time-lapse video below shows how the special design was painted on the jet.
