JetBlue + Spirit Airlines

Message from JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes

As a valued TrueBlue member we wanted to share with you the exciting news that JetBlue has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Spirit Airlines – an important first step to creating a bigger, better JetBlue for all our stakeholders.

Over time, this combination will bring you more of the JetBlue you know and love, including:

  • More of JetBlue’s award-winning onboard service, including the most legroom in coach, free high-speed wi-fi, free live TV and movies at every seat, and free brand-name snacks + drinks.
  • More choices across a larger, deeper network, with a combined footprint of over 125 destinations and more than 1,700 daily flights.
  • More opportunities to earn and redeem your TrueBlue points.
  • More low fares for all customers, regardless of who you fly, because JetBlue is proven to lower legacy carrier fares on the routes it flies (the “JetBlue Effect”).

As you can imagine, combining two airlines takes time and we still have a lot more work to do behind the scenes. After close, the combined airline will operate under the JetBlue brand. Eventually, all Spirit aircraft will be converted to JetBlue, but for now nothing is changing – we remain two independent airlines until the transaction closes. Any tickets you’ve purchased on either JetBlue or Spirit are still valid, and all your points and benefits stay exactly the same. We will keep you posted as we have additional details to share.

In the meantime, to learn more about what this exciting combination will mean for you, visit our special website at We look forward to welcoming you again onboard soon!

Thank you,
