Airport, Tortugas present New York Night May 27

Posted On: May 3, 2017

Daytona Beach International Airport is teaming up with the Daytona Tortugas for New York Night at Jackie Robinson Ballpark May 27, when the Tortugas take on the Tampa Yankees. Fans will have a chance to win a roundtrip for two on JetBlue to New York City from Daytona Beach. In January, JetBlue celebrated its first year of service from Daytona Beach International Airport to New York’s JFK Airport.

Airport staff will answer questions and pass out promotional items before the game, and a representative from JetBlue will throw out the first pitch.

 “New York Night at the ballpark is just another way we are celebrating our new, long-term partnership with our local baseball team. It’s a great event to support and bring together our hometown team and our hometown airport,” said Jay Cassens, business development director at Daytona Beach International Airport. “Overall, 2016 was one of the strongest years we have seen in the last 20 years, and we recognize how important community involvement is in our efforts to reach record passenger numbers, recruit new airlines and expand service with existing carriers. Just as we support our hometown baseball team with this partnership, we encourage local residents to utilize their hometown airport.”

Fans who attend the May 27 game may stop by the airport tent near Autograph Alley to register to win the trip. The winner will be chosen randomly and announced during the seventh inning.
