JetBlue Airways recieves 29th slot
This past week, the Long Beach Airport held a drawing for the only available slot at the airport. The drawing was between JetBlue Airways and Sun Country Airlines. The slot became available on December 5, 2008 when Airborne Express pulled out of Long Beach. Tom Berg who is General Manager for JetBlue at Long Beach pulled the winning ticket for the slot. The Sun Country representative who was present for the drawing said that they were looking for any available slots at Long Beach Airport to move their one daily flight from LAX where they fly to from Minneapolis/St Paul Intl.
