JetBlue Founder Neeleman Reportedly to Start New Airline Called Moxy

JetBlue founder David Neeleman is reportedly launching a new airline possibly to be called Moxy. The airline is said to be based on the low-cost carrier model similar to JetBlue and less like Spirit Airlines, and will operate the Bombardier C-series aircraft. Reports say the preliminary order is for 60 Bombardier CS300s.

The start-up would begin service in 2020 with a goal of using secondary airports at the major cities. Start-up funds are being raised now. According to Airline Weekly, the funds are coming from several sources including the former Air Canada CEO Robert Milton, the former ILFC CEO Henri Courpron, and Neeleman’s own fortune.
