You’ll get to tour JetBlue’s modern facility, which includes 40+ flight deck and cabin simulators, as well as The Lodge, which operates as a boutique hotel for learners, where every element is designed to reinforce JetBlue’s values, promote collaboration and teamwork, and deliver the JetBlue Experience.
