Atmosphere360, a student spec agency, created the "It's Fun To Jet!" campaign in 2010 for JetBlue's student non-traditional advertising competition.

The campaign works to establish JetBlue as Boston's hometown airline among the business and leisure traveler among other objectives. This campaign fulfills with nine unique executions with only a $50,000 budget.

The campaign went through many rounds of judging culminating with three agencies pitching the business to JetBlue at their headquarters in NY.

The campaign and the agency were named the winner and now hold the title of JetBlue's student agency of record.

The work was completed by: Steph Costa (Account Planner), Sarah Jacobs (Copywriter), Brock Pisciotta (Art Director) + Trevor Morrow (Account Executive).

    MANIFESTO

    As an airway, you catch people at one of their few static moments.

    Its that in transit state when travelers are neither here nor there.

    Whether they are headed to college for the first time, going on business to land that major deal, or going to take part at their sisters wedding, people come and go for a reason.

    Their trip starts with you, and while its about the destination, its also about the journey of getting there.

    Its about making that experience comfortable, simple, and dare we say, Fun.

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARYTraveling is a unique experience. It allows for exploration and discovery of more then just destinations and cities, its a chance for the individual to explore their own wants and desires; perhaps even discover who they are. This feeling around travel isnt new. During the Golden Age of travel, Americans explored the skies in leisure, style, and sophistication. This time is gone. Travel today is too often about nickel and diming passengers and shoving as many people as possible into a single plane, all while rushing through to the next destination. Or it was until 2000, when JetBlue launched a new kind of airline. JetBlue differentiated from other airlines through sincere branding and honest care and consideration for their passengers, all with wit and charm. This has allowed for JetBlue to become a favorite airline for many travelers despite only being 10 years old! Air travel is sometimes associated with the stress of security, long lines, and baggage problems. With JetBlue, its easy for all of this to fade away and let an enjoyable, personal, and highly memorable experience emerge. Traveling is a frequent part of the targets lives: whether they are flying to and from college, going home to their parents house for holidays, taking vacations, attending weddings, doing business, or perhaps relocating. This is a group who demands the brands they interact with be personal, unique, and open to two-way communication -- all of which JetBlue already does. This campaign highlights how JetBlue is the fun airway to fly. With generous amenities, kind service, and distinct personality, flying JetBlue puts consumers in a positive mindset. Bringing this mindset to the people of Boston during their everyday lives will help place JetBlue into consumers immediate consideration set when booking travel, and solidify the airways position with the business traveler. This June, JetBlue and Boston are taking a unique trip together -- to the streets and minds of the Boston traveler.
