On October 11 2e Systems released the latest version of the eeCrewConnect® mobile app for JetBlue, known as JETCRW. The new release makes use of geofencing technology to support JetBlue's "positive check-in" procedure, which requires all crew members to check in for duty while physically located at the airport. The app is now the primary system for all JetBlue crew members to check in for duty, with the only alternative being to use phones located in airport crew areas.
