JetBlue has released a new jet that has a retro vibe and looks like it flew right out of the past. The first plane, which is one of ten, made its first flight from New York to Palm Springs on November 11.
Jamie Perry, the vice president of marketing at JetBlue released a statement about the jet.
“The 1960s were rich with sleek but bold graphics and style – characteristics of today’s JetBlue brand. With that in mind our team broke from our tradition of timeless designs and instead imagined a look to celebrate this iconic era of aviation and what JetBlue may have looked when it would have been introducing humanity to air travel.”
The tagline for the planes is “What’s Old is Blue Again,” and the crew members uniforms were curated to match the retro theme. They chose Palm Springs as the starting point for the planes because of the town’s style.
Scott White, the President & CEO of the Greater Palm Springs Convention & Visitors Bureau released a statement as well.
“Greater Palm Springs is proud to be the epicenter of the nation’s most significant collection of mid-century architecture. The architecture and art created by acclaimed artists and architects and found throughout our nine-city destination represent one of the many reasons why everyone comes to experience the oasis lifestyle.”
