JetBlue Starts Flying First Airbus A321neo, Honors Founder

by Chris Dong

While it won’t be 2021 until JetBlue starts flights to Europe, the airline just took delivery of the shorter range version of the plane that will end up servicing those flights. JetBlue flew its first ever Airbus A321neo between New York-JFK and Fort Lauderdale (FLL) earlier today.

It also honored JetBlue’s founder, David Neeleman, by naming the aircraft after him.

“David Neeleman’s vision is as relevant today as it was 20 years ago, and today we honor his contributions to JetBlue. He set us on a course to lead the industry in customer comfort and amenities, and today we’re proud to continue in that tradition by introducing this new aircraft that’s both fuel efficient and features our most advanced cabin design,” said CEO Robin Hayes.

Ironically, Neeleman will be starting up a brand new airline that will potentially compete with JetBlue. That airline is codenamed Moxy and could begin operations as early as next year.

Here are some photos of JetBlue’s gorgeous new Airbus A321neo.
