GET UPDATES FROM Tracy Christoph
 
”Vacations do not begin when you arrive at your destination, they begin the moment you board the plane.” With nearly 20 years of experience in the airline industry, Tracy Christoph is a knowledgeable, effervescent JetBlue flight attendant with a passion for travel, culture and customer service. Tracy attended the Wilma Boyd Travel/Business School in Pittsburgh, PA but her education extends far beyond classroom borders; her extensive career in the airline industry has taken her around the world, a learning experience she considers unparalleled. Prior to her eight years as an inflight crewmember for JetBlue, Tracy worked as an initial operating experience instructor, ticket counter supervisor and initial training instructor, on both domestic and international flights. Tracy has been with JetBlue since 2004, based out of New York and Florida and currently out of Boston, MA.

The recipient of JetBlue’s “Excellence in Customer Service” award, Tracy is committed to providing flyers with an enjoyable experience every time she steps onto a plane. Though she’s a world traveler, Tracy’s heart remains in Virginia, where she was born and raised. No stranger to the spotlight, Tracy has appeared as an extra in movies and on television, and is also a former beauty pageant participant with a few titles under her belt.

In her spare time, Tracy enjoys coupling her travel with volunteer opportunities, most recently with her daughter at an orphanage in Jaibon, Dominican Republic. Tracy also holds a Liberal Arts degree from the University of Richmond.
