JetBlue Files Flight Plan To Brooklyn, NY, Lands Deal With Barclays Center

By Barry Janoff

December 19, 2012: There are two airports within the borders of New York City — John F. Kennedy International and LaGuardia — both located in the borough of Queens. But that hasn't stopped JetBlue from filing a flight plan to Brooklyn, where the airline has signed a deal to become the official domestic airline of Barclays Center, the recently-opened home of the NBA's Brooklyn Nets.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. The wording of the agreement leaves the door open for Barclays to sign an international airline to a marketing deal.

Under terms of the alliance, JetBlue will get exclusive digital street-to-seat signage for all events, courtside TV-visible signage and baseline signage during Brooklyn Nets home games and arena activation rights. JetBlue also will support with TV, Internet and signage at airport terminals.

JetBlue said it would help to launch the alliance on Dec. 20 with activation at JFK to include a hoops court where ticketed customers would have the opportunity to shoot baskets and win such prizes as flight giveaways and Nets game tickets. The Brooklyn Nets dance team, the Brooklynettes, is scheduled to be in attendance.

Throughout January, Barclays Center will host a “Bound for Brooklyn” sweepstakes, presented by JetBlue, for the chance to score round trip JetBlue tickets to or from New York, plus a pair of tickets to an event at Barclays Center. Five winners will be selected every Thursday for a total of 25 winners.

(Full details here.)

“Barclays Center represents renewal and innovation in New York, much like JetBlue was introduced over a decade ago,” Marty St. George, svp-marketing and commercial strategy for JetBlue, said in a statement. “We’re very happy to be part of this new endeavor, which promises to delight and entertain fans for many years to come."

Joining the Nets during Barclays Center's first year of operation will be boxing, tennis and college basketball and hockey; plus a plethora of entertainment events. The NHL's New York Islanders are scheduled to move to the venue from Nassau Coliseum for the 2015-16 season.

In addition to naming rights holder Barclays, the arena has alliances with founding partners American Express, Calvin Klein, Cushman & Wakefield, EmblemHealth, Foxwoods Resort Casino, Geico, Honda, MetroPCS, Stolichnaya and TicketMaster. Other sponsors include Anheuser-Busch, Coca-Cola, Haier America, HighPoint Solutions, New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge, Red Bull, Sony, Tyco and Willis.

"JetBlue is a great New York City-based airline, which offers the same commitment to top customer service and innovation as Barclays Center."

According to Brett Yormark, Barclays Center CEO, "JetBlue is a great New York City-based airline, which offers the same commitment to top customer service and innovation as Barclays Center. We are looking forward to welcoming JetBlue passengers to Barclays Center for world-class sports and entertainment.”

"As the largest domestic carrier at JFK, with our new support center here in Long Island City, we’re New York’s 'Hometown Airline' and, like the Barclays Center, will maintain our focus on top notch customer service, value and entertainment," added JetBlue's St. George. "The partnership is a perfect fit!”
