At a tailgate themed event, JetBlue revealed a refreshed livery design made specially for the New York Jets. JetBlue became the official airline of the New York Jets back in 2009, and in 2010 revealed its “JetGreen” aircraft. The event and revealing of the new livery design on Tuesday, seven years later, signifies the continued partnership between the airline and the team.
The aircraft (N746JB) featuring the revised livery is almost completely covered in green including the wingtips, engines and the fuselage. At the front it features a large NY Jets logo, and in the back sports the JetBlue logo on the tail. Running on the bottom of the fuselage are yard lines, such as those that would be seen on a football field.
The final touches included the iconic “I LOVE NEW YORK” logo under the cockpit windows and a NY Jets helmet after the rear door.
During the event there were many planned activities for attendees, such as the opportunity to meet players from the New York Jets such as Bilal Powell (29) and Buster Skrine (41).
The Jets Flight Crew Cheerleaders were also present to greet and take pictures with guests. JetBlue also presented a $10,000 check for the Harlem Jets youth football team, which includes some of the city’s youngest players.
Neil Glat, President of the New York Jets stated “Our partnership with JetBlue exudes a true ‘hometown feel’ and engages our many fans throughout the entire greater New York area. We look forward to what lies ahead for our valued partnership in the years to come.”
For both fans of the NY Jets and JetBlue, the partnership continues to be exciting as it takes off to new heights.
