Blade provides airport transfers for JetBlue members
Blade is to provide complimentary airport transfers for Mosaic+ members connecting to or from JetBlue flights, while also expanding its airport service.

US-based technology-powered air mobility platform Blade Air Mobility is to integrate its airport service into JetBlue's TrueBlue loyalty programme through 2023. The company will be adding an additional route of continuous daily service between Blade Lounge East, located at East 34th Street in Manhattan, and John F Kennedy International airport in New York starting 27 June, 2022, as well as introducing additional flights harmonised with JetBlue's growing international schedule operating out of JFK.

“Given its New York City roots, JetBlue is an ideal partner as we have ramped up our Blade airport service to six days a week and up to 13 hours per day in New York City,” says president Melissa Tomkiel.

“We know the JetBlue journey starts long before our customers step aboard one of our flights, which is why we are making more of the entire travel experience even easier and even more rewarding,” says JetBlue vice president of loyalty and partnerships Chris Buckner. “This partnership with Blade will help us further evolve and enhance our TrueBlue programme so our most loyal customers can enjoy more perks more often.”

“We look forward to enabling loyal JetBlue fliers to substitute up to two hours of ground congestion for a five minute flight between Manhattan and area airports,” adds director, strategic marketing and brand partnerships Jeffrey Brenner.
