I came across a document from Airbus saying that JetBlue's Billing address is 6322 South 3000 East Suite L 201, Salt Lake City, UT. That makes sense since the CEO is from Utah, but I wondered is that correct? I did an over head search and came across the building (Picture) and wondered do they use the entire building or just a part of it? And is that turely their place or are they located somewhere else in Salt Lake City.

Thanks


P.S here was the line for the document.

"...and JetBlue Airways Corporation, a corporation organized and existing under the laws of the State of Delaware, United States of America, having its principal corporate offices located at 6322 South 3000 East, Suite L-201, Salt Lake City, UT 84121, USA (hereinafter referred to as the "Buyer")."

I thought that there HQ was in Brookyln. He lives in New York state, but grew up in Brazil, and Salt Lake CIty. Are you sure it wasnt for his previous airline Morris Air?

A more interesting question might be what it is that JetBlue (an all Airbus operator) is actually buying from Boeing... It sure isn't 737 parts...  Wink

What exactly would Boeing, of all companies, be selling to jetBlue? Jeppesen charts and other supplies would be the only thing I can think of.

OPNLguy-

GMTA, I suppose.

Since the 1999 date in that contract was just before JetBlue started ops, I'm going to venture a guess that maybe the address was that of a legal firm involved in their start-up preps...

I believe I read in Blue Streak that Neelman got started in Salt Lake (there are a lot employees there -- many telemarketing), but that the intension was always to start from New York. In 1999, they may not have yet signed the lease in their current head quarters in Forest Hills, NY (Queens, not too far from the airport). Could it be that the initial paperwork was done out of Neelman's lawyer's office? The lawyer -- if I recollect correctly -- was involved in both Morris and then the early stages of B6.

Hope this helps.

Best,

Wasim / Planemannyc

I believe JetBlue's reservations agents are based in SLC. (Yes, I know they work from home, but mostly in the SLC area). I don't know what other operational stuff they have in SLC but nothing would surprise me considering that's where Neeleman is from and basically where the idea of JBU got into his head.  Smile

Also i have found some information that their headquarters used to be in Kew Gardens, NY.

from saltlakecityutah.org

Salt Lake City has a diversified economy. The mining of materials, including copper, silver, lead, zinc, coal, and iron ore, is important to the city's industrial base. Southwest of the city is Bingham Canyon, which includes the Kennecott Copper Mine, one of the largest open-pit mines in the world. Church, government, finance, education, research, high-technology industries, transportation, recreation, and tourism account for most of the city's employment. Among the city's largest employers are the federal and state governments, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the University of Utah, Kennecott Corporation, and Delta Airlines.


No mention of JetBlue...


All this leads me to believe that their current HQ are in Forest Hills, NY, and as far as i remember and can tell, only their reservation office and flight training programs are in Salt Lake City. I remember reading an article that Salt Lake was chosen not only because of Neelmans past there, but the fact that Salt Lake has the highest percentage of people that are bilangual or more, which makes sense for a reservation center.

Scroll down to paragraph #7....

The address was for the New Air Corporation, which I presume was the working corporate title of what became JetBlue...

Hey that building is less than five minutes from my house. Cool.

Anyways, JetBlue does occupy this building. From what I understand, Reservations and most customer service work (other than airport) is done here, and yes JetBlue also has a number of reservation agents who work from home. There is probably more done here too, I don't know.

According to business.utah.gov, JetBlue has 1000-1999 employees (rather broad, eh?) in Salt Lake City.

Kew Gardens and Forest Hills are the same area of Queens. Along Queens Blvd at the intersection of Union Tpke.

5 miles North of JFK. 5 miles south of LGA. The area has a lot of crash pads for that reason

To clear some things up:

SLC has the customer commitment department, revenue management, true blue, and reservations. the actual reservation agents work from home, but they are trained and refined at the SLC office.

Darien CT houses planning, accounting [payroll etc.], and some other odds and ends.

Forest Hills houses everything else including a lot of training, executives, marketing, etc.

My money is on JetBlue going after SLC as a hub at some point.
