Dean Baldwin Joins JetBlue Airway, Honoring FDNY

May 19, 2023

Dean Baldwin Painting, LP. has been painting aircraft for JetBlue Airways since 2010. So this is not the first themed livery painted by the experts at Dean Baldwin Painting celebrating organizations for JetBlue. Dean Baldwin also painted the Boston Red Sox and New York State Tourism “I Love New York” aircraft; but, the Blue Bravest aircraft is a special tribute. This innovative aircraft paint scheme is a vast departure from the JetBlue iconic blue and white and was painted red as a special tribute to the FDNY Foundation.

“We appreciate the hard work and dedication of the firefighters and emergency medical technicians who work in NYC,” said Barbara Baldwin, president and CEO of Dean Baldwin Painting, LP. “And for us, it is also a tribute to our hometown firefighters, paramedics, and emergency medical technicians who work hard every day to keep us safe, sometimes to their own parcel.”
The aircraft was painted with a special sense of pride, and it showed in the beautifully painted bright red and blue aircraft. Upon its completion, the aircraft flew directly over the Hudson River at sunrise, giving New Yorkers the first glimpse of this aircraft dedicated to the FDNY Foundation. 
“Dean Baldwin is a valued business partner, said Dave Barger, JetBlue’s president and CEO. “Their work is equal parts art and science, as clearly seen in our Blue Bravest aircraft, honoring the FDNY Foundation. We appreciate their fine craftsmanship and professionalism.”
Barger and FDNY Commissioner Salvatore Cassano revealed this aircraft to JetBlue crewmembers, friends and family, and FDNY personnel on October 23 at JetBlue’s JFK hangar. 
“It was truly an honor to be asked by JetBlue to paint this livery for them and I am proud to be a JetBlue business partner,” Baldwin continued.
