BOSTON - More than six weeks after the Red Sox won the 2018 World Series, JetBlue Airlines raised the latest Boston sports championship banner at Logan Airport.
In a ceremony held at Terminal C on Tuesday morning and attended by Boston Police Commissioner William Gross, Former Red Sox closer Keith Foulke and others the newest Red Sox banner was raised.
"Boston definitely has the best sports fans for good reason." said Foulke. " Just look at these banners and the long history of championships and there's really no sign of it stopping."
With this new banner now added there are 37 Championship banners that hang above the ropes as you go through security on your way to boarding JetBlue flights leaving Logan Airport.
According to Red Sox EVP of Partnerships Troup Parkinson, JetBlue has been a model partner for the team. "It's been a great partnership. They came on in 2008 as our official airline and it's grown from there. In 2012 they took over JetBlue Park, our spring training home in Florida. They are just great people"
"I'd like to personally thank JetBlue Airines." said Boston Police Commissioner William Gross. " When we had the tragic hurricanes hit Puerto Rico twice, JetBlue flew a contingency of law enforcement officers to Puerto Rico to help out."
As part of Tuesday's ceremony, JetBlue also presented a check for $15,000 to Red Sox Manager Alex Cora's charity called "The Corporaton of Miracles". The $15,000 came from one dollar donated for each person who flew on the JetBlue Red Sox plane for the month of November.
"When Alex Cora became the manager of the Red Sox he said he wanted to help out his homeland of Puerto Rico. " said JetBlue Regional Marketing Manager Ronda McLeod. " And with us being the largest airline in Puerto Rico we partnered with Alex and the Red Sox and were proud to send down ten thousand pounds of supplies and medical equipment to help out."
