Crystal Blueversary for JetBlue at AUA Airport
It’s a blue month here in Aruba, as we celebrate JetBlue's 15th "Blueversary" (anniversary) operating into Aruba.
ORANJESTAD: On Wednesday, September 15, 2021, the AUA Airport and the JetBlue Airways team celebrated with a cake and snacks, JetBlue's 15th "Blueversary" (anniversary) operating into Aruba.
It all started with the announcement back in 2006 that JetBlue would start its operation into Aruba out of its home base, New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), with daily flights. Soon after that, in June 2007, weekly service out of Boston (BOS) was launched, which soon ramped up to daily service. Can you recall that special day back in 2014 when JetBlue brought Aruba's one-millionth passenger for that year to Aruba?
In January 2017, JetBlue added service out of Fort Lauderdale (FLL), and in November 2020, the latest destination, Newark (EWR), was added.
Today's JetBlue network out of the northeast and the south of the USA into Aruba is a testament to JetBlue's continued confidence in the destination. JetBlue is AUA Airport’s largest carrier now, with a market share of 27% of all departing flights out of Aruba. AUA Airport's partnership with JetBlue is invaluable and has grown strong and resilient, especially during the past trying times. Through the strong partnership built over the past 15 years, AUA Airport is confident that AUA Airport will continue to enjoy a fruitful relationship with JetBlue for many more years to come.
Happy 15th Blueversary JetBlue!
