JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq:JBLU) today announces the appointment of Alex Battaglia to Vice President, JetBlue JFK Airport, the low-fare airline’s hometown airport, effective April 2, 2007. Mr. Battaglia comes to JetBlue following a 24-year career with Delta Air Lines in roles of increasing responsibility, culminating in the position of Director-JFK Operations.

“Alex is the perfect fit for JetBlue as we continue to grow our airline within North America,” said Rob Maruster, JetBlue’s senior vice president, Airports and Operational Planning. “Alex’s experience in the airport environment, which ranges from customer service to leadership positions, will greatly serve JetBlue, our crewmembers, and our customers as we continue to focus on delivering great service, industry-leading comfort and low fares.”

“JetBlue is a great airline and I’m honored to join the team,” Mr. Battaglia said. “JetBlue’s plans for the future at JFK, including the Terminal 5 project, which will be our new home in late 2008, point to an airline dedicated to growth, customer comfort and most importantly, personal service. I look forward to meeting our customers and crewmembers.”

JetBlue is constructing a new terminal facility at John F. Kennedy International Airport that will support up to 250 daily flights from 26 gates. The new terminal will be linked to TWA’s historic Eero Saarinen building at Terminal 5, and the project is expected to be complete by the end of 2008.
