JetBlue has placed firm orders for 100 E190s and expects to take delivery of approximately 18 of the new aircraft each year between 2006 and 2011. This plane has a total seating capacity of 100 passengers in a single class layout and is used mainly on short and medium-haul flights having a range of 2100 miles.
The Embraer 190 is the newest model in Embraer’s E-Jet family. With its unique “double bubble” fuselage design and state-of-the-art technology, the E190 offers customers one of the most spacious and relaxing cabins in its class. All seats are equipped with an entertainment system, featuring 36 channels of DIRECTV® plus more than 100 channels of XM Satellite Radio for free and, on flights longer than two hours, a selection of movies on FOX InFlight Premium Entertainment.
JetBlue Airways took to the air on February 11, 2000 with the inauguration of service between New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Fort Lauderdale, FL. The airline currently serves 32 cities around the US and the Caribbean with a fleet of Embraer 190 and Airbus A320 aircraft. Jet Blue was the first airline to offer 24-channels of live satellite television free at every seat and to broadcast the Olympic Games live, the first U.S. airline to install bullet-proof cockpit doors across its fleet and the first airline to install security cameras in passenger cabin for customer and crew safety.
