JetBlue to Retrofit Airbus Fleet with Vortex Generators:
JetBlue today announces plans to retrofit its entire Airbus fleet with noise-reducing vortex generators. This move reflects JetBlue’s continued commitment to the communities where its customers and crewmembers live and work. Beginning in 2015, JetBlue began taking delivery of new aircraft with vortex generators already installed. JetBlue is committing to add the devices to its 138 remaining Airbus A320 family aircraft through 2021.
The small devices disrupt wind over ports on the wing which can produce a “whistling” tone during approach into an airport.
