Social

1. Social initiatives and goodwill: JetBlue with its ‘Vet in Blue’ initiative commits to hire current and former military heroes across all the areas of the Company. With its partnership with Jobs Mission it plans to induct 300000 veterans by 2020. However, JetBlue’s success depends highly upon the experience provided by the crewmembers on ground as well as sky. Leveraging on the strength to be service oriented help them to differentiate from the competitors. Its ‘JetBlue Gateway Program’ has helped its crewmembers and students to induct in the industry and realize their goals. It has ranked 19 on the America’s Top 500 Best Employers List by Forbes Magazine. However these initiatives have helped it get goodwill in U.S market for attracting potential consumers.

Technological

1. JetBlue Technology Ventures: Continuous revamping is applied to JetBlue initiatives to introduce newer technologies which help improve and optimize operations. Disruptions in them tend to affect the company’s operations owing to its dependence on technology for operations. This poses significant challenges in terms of costs, human resources, and effective internal controls. To avoid this JetBlue Airways has started a venture capital subsidiary called JetBlue Technology Ventures in February 2016, which invests and partners with early stage startups for technological inventions with a focus on travel and hospitality sectors. The firm prefers to focus on airlines, airports, and aerospace manufacturers. It runs an accelerator program which invests $0.05 million in each startup in exchange of equity. Some of its investments are in hyper-local weather forecasting Company ClimaCell, Investment and Partnership with Global Startup Platform for Travel Technology.
