There’s a new JetBlue airplane wearing a special livery, this time to celebrate the Boston Bruins hockey team. The airline revealed the special-colors plane, looking very different from the usual white-and-blue, at Boston Logan International Airport on Monday, as the Bruins compete in the NHL Eastern Conference Finals.

Aptly named “Bear Force One,” the Airbus A320 was unveiled at a ceremony in the presence of JetBlue and Bruins executives  plus the Bruins’ mascot, Blades the Bruin, and fans. The aircraft is going on its first revenue flight with the new livery on Monday, transporting Bruins fans on a charter flight to Raleigh-Durham for Game 3 of the finals. It will then return to regular scheduled service with the airline.

This is the very first JetBlue livery dedicated to a team in the NHL, but the airline has been focusing on Boston for years, and it’s now the largest carrier out of BOS based on the number of flights, customers carried and nonstop destinations served. Last year, to celebrate the Boston Celtic’s run in the NBA playoffs, JetBlue decked out one of its A320s in bright green and white. The airline also has special-livery airplanes in support of other teams: the Boston Red Sox, the New York Jets, and Real Salt Lake. (You can keep track of the airline’s various special-themed jets at Aeropx.com.)

Fan of the Bruins? Or just can’t get enough of these novelty liveries? Well, if you want to track the movements of “Bear Force One” — or, potentially, fly aboard it — its registration is N632JB. Follow its movements on FlightRadar24.com.
