After leading JetBlue Airways' move to Terminal 5 at John F. Kennedy International airport in 2008, Alex Battaglia has been named VP of airports.

His responsibilities have been expanded to include all airport-related functions across the low-cost carrier's network of 53 destinations in nine countries.

Most recently VP of Kennedy operations, Battaglia began working for the airline in March 2007.

Battaglia joined JetBlue after a 24-year career with Delta Air Lines in roles of increasing responsibility, culminating in the position of Director of Kennedy operations.

Marisa von Wieding, previously JetBlue's Director of Kennedy operations, is now Director of that facility's operations and customer service, expanding her responsibilities from rampside operation to include the entire experience from curb to runway.
