California Travel Advisory (CTA) is an advisory issued by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) to help Californians prepare for flight delays and cancellations.
The CTA states that flights originating from California may be affected by delays or cancellations of up to 45 days.
JetBlue Airlines is advising California residents to check its website for any delays or cancelled flights.
JetBlue said the CTA was issued for “emergency reasons that require a rapid response by Caltrans and other state agencies”.
JetBlue CEO Bill Gurley issued a statement saying: “We are providing our customers with the most up-to-date information on the status of flights that will arrive in California in the next 48 hours.
If you are planning a trip to California, we strongly recommend that you use the Caltrans website to stay updated.
Our flight schedule and travel plans will continue to be updated as more information becomes available.”
JetBlue, which has been struggling with a record backlog of cancellations and delays, is currently facing the biggest wave of cancellings and delays since the start of the California drought in April.
Jerry Brown announced on Wednesday that he would take over the reins of the state’s emergency management agency.
“Today, I am stepping aside from the reins to lead the California Emergency Management Agency, and we are focused on rebuilding the state,” Brown said.
“I am calling upon Caltrans, the Federal Aviation Administration, state and local officials, business leaders, and others to come together to build on the success of Governor Brown’s leadership in the aftermath of the devastating drought.
The emergency management agencies of the 50 states and Washington, D.C., will work together to provide assistance to the millions of Californians impacted by the state-wide emergency.”
JetBlue has confirmed that it is in discussions with the state over its flight schedule, but declined to say when the flights will depart.
JetLine, which operates JetBlue flights to California from Los Angeles, San Francisco and other major airports, said it was working with the airline to confirm when flights will arrive.
The company’s CEO said on Wednesday: “While we are currently working with Caltrans to get a clearer picture of our flight schedule as well as our final schedule for next week, we are working to ensure that all our flights go as planned.”
JetLine said it would work with the agency “as needed to ensure flights are ready to fly on time and in the best interest of our customers”.
On Wednesday, the FAA said JetBlue and its parent company JetBlue Southwest are in “advanced discussions” with the FAA regarding the CTAs emergency management order.
“We continue to have an open dialogue with CalTC and other authorities to address our flight delays, and have also engaged with JetDelta’s CEO and senior management to help with our contingency plans. “
“The FAA will continue its review of these reports and the FAA will issue final updates to its public notice on this issue once the final CTAs recommendations have been reviewed.” “
JetAirlines CEO David Karp said the airline was also in talks with the California FAA to find a solution. “

A statement from JetAirlines said: JetAirways has been cooperating fully with the CAFEMA and is actively working with local authorities and local flight service providers to plan for future flight delays.
JetAirline continues to offer JetDelta and JetBlue flight schedules and will continue providing all of our guests with the latest information about our schedule.
“Our team is committed to working with state and federal agencies and will work with any and all airlines impacted by these delays and delays that may occur in the coming weeks and months.
We will continue offering the best service to our customers.”
Caltrans spokesman Dave Smith said the agency had not yet received any information from JetBlue or JetBlue’s parent company about the CTAS emergency management plans.
It’s not clear when JetBlue will be able to fly flights to or from California, but JetBlue has not made a final decision about its schedule.
If the FAA does not issue an emergency response plan for California airports, it may be difficult for JetBlue to maintain a significant volume of service in the state, especially if it relies on California as its primary gateway to the mainland.
There have been reports of JetBlue customers cancelling flights because of the CA emergency management.
Earlier this week, JetAirplanes CEO David Sacks said the company was in discussions to move to a new carrier, adding that the company is not considering moving to California.
However, in a statement on Wednesday, Jet Airlines CEO Sacks added:
