JetBlue Unveils Restyled Airbus A320 Interior

: May 4, 2018 - : 4:15 pm

JetBlue has unveiled its first Airbus A320 to undergo the airline’s fleet restyling, which brings an all-new interior to its A320 aircraft. The aircraft, tail N646JB named “Bravo Lima Uniform Echo,” operated its first scheduled flight on May 2 between Boston Logan international Airport and Bermuda’s L.F. Wade International Airport.

A major focus of the restyling is keeping customers connected throughout their flight, including a new inflight entertainment system, high-definition seatback televisions, in-seat power outlets with USB ports and continued free gate-to-gate Fly-Fi high-speed internet.

“JetBlue’s A320 restyling is about making the best even better,” said Marty St. George, executive vice president commercial and planning, JetBlue. “JetBlue has built its innovative reputation on offering our customers the very best products and a level of service they won’t find on another U.S. airline and this update ensures we remain the go-to choice for flyers who expect nothing but the best.”

“JetBlue’s decision to upgrade to state of the art wireless connectivity and IFE will truly be a highlight to their customers,” said Jeff Knittel, Chairman & CEO, Airbus Americas, Inc. “The A320 remains a market leader with JetBlue’s focus on customer comfort and innovative technologies. Airbus is proud to be a part of JetBlue’s success!”

The restyling will include two iterations of the design, with the 2018 model introducing features from the A321 interior and the 2019 and beyond model featuring an innovative seat design and in-flight entertainment system unlike anything offered by U.S. airlines today.

For roughly the next nine months, JetBlue’s A320s will be restyled with the Rockwell Collins Pinnacle seat and LiveTV 4 entertainment options currently enjoyed by customers on the airline’s A321 aircraft. In early 2019, JetBlue will transition to the restyling featuring the Rockwell Collins Meridian seat and Thales AVANT and ViaSat-2 products.

JetBlue expects to complete approximately a dozen A320 restyles by the end of this year, with the ability to complete multiple aircraft each month by 2019. The carrier’s A320 classics will be restyled first. JetBlue’s overall A320 restyling is set to take approximately three years.
