MOBILE, Ala. - JetBlue's first A220 aircraft rolled out of the paint shop at the Airbus manufacturing campus at the Mobile Aeroplex Monday morning. It features JetBlue's latest aircraft  tail design, “Hops,” which will be featured on its A220-300 aircraft. Travelers will spot the new design in 2021 after the first aircraft is delivered in December. The “Hops” design was created by JetBlue’s in-house designers, and is a nod to the idea of connecting many short trips together as part of a larger journey, commonly referred to in travel as hopping.
