Journey Group plc is a leading provider of in-flight products and catering services to the international airline and travel industries.

JetBlue Airways is a low-cost US airline that began operations in early 2000. It currently serves more than 70 destinations in over 20 US states and 12 countries (across the Caribbean, South America and Latin America). Its hubs in order of flight volume are New York (John F Kennedy), Boston, Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale and LGB. LGB is a city-owned, public-use airport in the city of Long Beach serving Los Angeles and the Orange County.

 

Together with the award of the Continental flights, announced in September 2012, and the existing flights for United Airlines both out of Los Angeles International airport, the US Division will now cater for an average number of approximately 145 flights a day in high season and 120 flights a day in low season.

 

Stephen Yapp, Executive Chairman, said: “This strategically important contract for a new client at a new airport demonstrates the scalability and flexibility of our unique model. We believe our award-winning patented model continues to strengthen our competitiveness by delivering both high quality and financial improvements for our customers. This financial year, the US Division has made significant strategic and financial progress and we remain positive about continuing the momentum in shareholder value creation.”
