Red Sox' New Spring Training Facility Named JetBlue Park

JetBlue Airways Corporation has signed an eight-year extension as the Official Airline of the Boston Red Sox and the Official Airline of Fenway Park. Additionally, the airline will sponsor JetBlue Park, the new Spring Training ballpark for the Boston Red Sox in Lee County, Florida.

"From the outset, our relationship with JetBlue Airways has been a true partnership based on our shared commitment to the highest levels of customer service," said Sam Kennedy, Red Sox Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. "The foundation of our work together continues to be in Boston and Fenway Park, but we're thrilled that with today's announcement it now officially extends not only to our new Spring Training home in Lee County, Florida, but also to our work in the Dominican Republic. This is a great day for Red Sox Nation."

"As the largest carrier in Boston, we are proud to be the official airline of the Red Sox, and especially proud to renew our partnership today," said JetBlue's Senior Vice President of Marketing and Commercial Strategy Marty St. George

As part of the extension, JetBlue also becomes a Fenway Park Preservation Partner, making it one of a select group of organizations that will play a key role in helping the Club celebrate the 100th anniversary of its Boston home next year. "Whether it's taking part in the Fenway Park Centennial celebration in 2012 or volunteering side by side with Lindos Suenos, JetBlue is committed to being an involved member of the Boston Community," said Mr. St. George.

JetBlue is the largest carrier at Boston Logan International Airport, serving 39 destinations with up to 100 flights daily.
