Jet Blue is searching for a new home base. The lease on their corporate headquarters in Forest Hills expires in 2012; the company, which launched in NYC in 1999, employs some 400 employees at the location. According to NY1, the discount airline began searching last week for new locations in the New York metro area and beyond. A Jet Blue spokesman tells the St. Petersburg Times that the airline wants to consolidate its Queens headquarters with its departments in Long Island and Connecticut into a single location. But he insists they'll continue to have a significant presence the Big Apple because their largest base of operations is at JFK. Bids are currently being solicited by the airline, which could relocate even before the lease on their headquarters expires in 2012.
