What Happened:

Longtime LB Airport resident Jet-Blue announced they will cut down flight routes from Long Beach and stop all service through Oakland International Airport.

Between The Lines:

At the same time JetBlue cuts services on the west coast, the New York-based airline will expand footing in Boston and New York.

Remember When:

  • Last year, JetBlue abdicated some flight slots at the Long Beach Airport.

  • JetBlue exit from Long Beach was also a reaction to the City's changed the rules for 'usage of flight slots and signaled it may crack down on JetBlue for failure to comply' per the Gazette.

  • In 2017, the Long Beach City Council voted down a proposal that would have allowed the airport to conduct international flights.
