JetBlue plans to hire 5,000 New York City-based employees in 2022

JetBlue Plans to Bump Up NYC Workforce by More Than Half 

JetBlue and New York City Mayor Eric Adams said Monday the company will be adding 5,000 jobs in New York City in 2022. JetBlue will also work with the city to create a new workforce partnership to connect more New Yorkers with JetBlue jobs and to develop a strong pipeline for future careers at the airline.  

Adams joined JetBlue leaders Monday at a major hiring event to assist in filling many of these new positions. JetBlue currently employs around 8,000 New York City-based crew members, at the airports and at its Long Island City Support Center, its corporate headquarters.  

“Not only is JetBlue one of our largest home-grown employers, but the company is creating 5,000 new jobs in our city,” said Adams. “I look forward to working with them on a new workforce partnership that will provide more New Yorkers with career pathways and opportunities in this critical industry.”
