JetBlue extends CEO's contract, appoints CFO

JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes will continue to lead the carrier for at least another two years, having agreed to extend his employment contract to Sept. 1, 2023.

JetBlue’s CEO since 2015, Hayes “has successfully led JetBlue through the most challenging period in aviation history,” JetBlue board of directors chair Peter Boneparth said in a statement. “We are pleased he has chosen to extend his contract and help JetBlue continue to execute on its long-term strategy delivering benefits to customers, crewmembers and shareholders.”

The carrier also named Ursula Hurley CFO. Hurley, who has been with JetBlue for 17 years, became acting CFO earlier this year following the departure of CFO Steve Priest, who left to take the same position with eBay.
