JetBlue airways founder to a launch a new airline with the support of a startup. David Neeleman who is a Brazillian-American businessman, is a founder of four commercial airlines known as Morris Air, JetBlue, WestJet, and Azul Brazilian airlines, is set to add another feather to his cap in his collection of founding airlines. Neelman who was a CEO of JetBlue airways was asked to resign in 2007.
Neeleman’s startup is believed to have reached a deal with Airbus for 60 Airbus A220-300s. The deliveries of these aircraft is planned to start from 2021. The Pratt &Whitney geared turbofan engines powering the A220 is expected to embark 140 passengers at a time.
Airbus asked Neelman to announce about the airline at the Farnborough Air Show in England
The flight has already gained popularity because of its few middle seats. The seating arrangement is designed as two seats on one side and three on the other, providing passengers to enjoy ample amount of space. The aircraft is currently in service by Latvia’s Air Baltic
The idea for the new airline came between the fierce rivalry between Boeing and Airbus. The news of this new airline was welcomed by only one airline industry analyst who noted that after the advent of Virgin America, 11 years ago, there has been no other introduction of mainline airline in America, until now.
It is reported that Neelman hasn’t talked about a name that he is going to address to his new airline, it is the Airline Weekly who came up with Moxy Airways.
