JetBlue Selects Tomorrow.io for Weather Forecasting
Airline JetBlue has selected Tomorrow.io as its end-to-end weather forecasting technology for global operations, after a process to evaluate weather and climate solutions.
Tomorrow.io and JetBlue have been working together for five years, starting on ground operations at the Logan Airport in Boston. JetBlue Ventures also participated in the company’s Series A funding round. The teams have worked together on tactical solutions such as predictive de-icing programs that have been estimated to save JetBlue $50,000 per month per hub, as well as longer-term projects.
Tomorrow.io is a weather intelligence company, selling software that helps companies and governments deal with the business impact of weather. The company is also developing a constellation of 32 radar-equipped satellites, designed to provide a global precipitation dataset updated hourly.
“We’re delighted to see the progress Tomorrow.io has made along with JetBlue in the past few years,” said Amy Burr, president at JetBlue Ventures. “At our time of investment in Tomorrow.io, it was clear that the innovative vision they had was going to be the next-generation of forecasting in the aviation industry, and this relationship is a testament to JetBlue Ventures’ original mission to bring innovative technologies to our parent company.”
