ticket counter hours and location
Our ticket counter is located in Terminal E, next to Southwest and Virgin America and is open during the following hours:
6:00 a.m. - 8:30 p.m.
We recommend you arrive at the airport at least 90 minutes prior to departure. Avoid delays by checking for traffic alerts, and allow enough time to go through TSA screening, particularly during holidays and peak travel days. Please note, JetBlue has cutoff times for baggage check in, and also for check in at the departure gate; JetBlue will not be responsible for expenses incurred due to late check in.
You will need a boarding pass to get through security. Our flights depart out of Gate E4.
