St. George, 59, was JetBlue’s chief commercial officer reporting to Geraghty when he left the carrier, and the two had served on the leadership team. St. George helped build JetBlue’s flight network and worked on airline partnership strategies, brand and products. As president, he’ll oversee areas including marketing, network planning, sales and revenue management, loyalty and JetBlue Travel Products, the airline said in a statement Wednesday. 

After leaving JetBlue, St. George operated an airline consulting practice and was interim chief commercial officer at Norwegian Air Shuttle AS before joining Latam in 2020. Prior to JetBlue he held marketing and network planning roles at United Airlines Inc., now part of United Airlines Holdings Inc. and US Airways Inc., now part of American Airlines Group Inc.
