As part of Jetblue’s commitment to gain approval for its merger with Spirit, it is already considering giving Allegiant boarding gates and slots at 3 low-cost airports in Newark, Fort Lauderdale and Boston.

If the merger is approved, Jetblue will provide Allegiant with two gates in Boston, two in Newark and 43 take-off and landing passes at Newark Airport. Likewise, it will cede up to five boarding gates in Fort Lauderdale, but to the Broward County Aviation Department.

It comes after Jetblue sold all of Spirit’s stake in New York’s LaGuardia Airport in June to Frontier.

However, the above will only take place if airport authorities, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the US Department of Transportation (DOT) approve the merger.

As mentioned reportor.usIn August, Jetblue went to federal court in Massachusetts to dismiss a lawsuit brought by a consumer group, which the airline’s lawyers called “vague,” “speculative,” and “offers no evidence.” (Jetblue-Spirit: They ask judges to dismiss lawsuit against merger.)
