JetBlue Airways and Comarch cooperation

About JetBlue Airways

JetBlue Airways is an American airline founded in 1998 and headquartered in New York. The carrier has features of both a legacy and a low-cost airline. Its main base is JFK Airport in New York, where the airline possesses its own Terminal 5. JetBlue operates non-stop flights between American and Caribbean airports. The fleet consists of modern Airbus 320 and Embraer 190 airplanes comprising a total number  of 215 aircraft. Every seat provides passengers with access to TV and radio channels, available via a satellite connection.

Business Challenges

The JetBlue Airways launched the TrueBlue customer appreciation program in 2002. Passengers were granted a set amount of points for each type of trip: short, medium or long-haul. Double points were awarded for flights booked online. For every 100 points earned, a program member earned a roundtrip flight if redemption seats for a requested flight remained available. The airline revamped its loyalty scheme in 2009 and began to grant clients three points for every dollar spent towards a flight, excluding taxes and fees. Online booking is promoted with additional points and every seat on every flight is available for redemption. The amount of points required for redemption depends on the fare of the requested flight in USD. In 2013 the expiration of points was removed.
