NEW: JetBlue CEO Barger: “Worcester Feels Very JetBlue”

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Positivity was in the air at the Beechwood Hotel today as JetBlue CEO David Barger and city officials discussed the possibility of the airline coming to Worcester Regional Airport.

"My headline is, 'Worcester feels very JetBlue," Barger said. "We're going to take this back to our support center and our home offices as we take a look at our fleet schedule, our delivery plans and what makes sense for us."

City Manger Michael O'Brien shared Barger's positivity and implied that a forthcoming deal between the airpot and JetBlue was only a matter of time.

"We feel confident in what we will be able to deliver," O'Brien said. "We're confident that JetBlue will be a success here in Worcester, and it's just a matter of time now to work out the details. I hope the next time we're gathered here we're inking a deal for the first steps of full service out of Worcester Regional by JetBlue."

As for a timeline, Barger said the airline would do its homework before committing to anything, but that they should know more by October. While JetBlue to Worcester is not yet a done deal, Barger made it seem as if there was not much standing in the way of it becoming official.

"We'll go back, and (we) will crunch our time frame and our our fleet delivery schedule," Barger said. "That's our limiting factor really."
