Airport, JetBlue terminate lease pact

Orlando International Airport and JetBlue have mutually agreed to terminate a 30-year lease agreement for land on which the airline would have built a nearly $30 million, 300-room hotel to be used by company employees while they attended JetBlue's adjacent training center.

JetBlue had previously decided to cancel its plans for the employee hotel -- scheduled to have been completed by the end of 2009 -- because the surge in oil prices forced the company to cut back on non-core business expenses.

However, in the termination agreement, JetBlue agreed to pay all rent that was due through June 18, 2008 and all associated fees or nearly $150,000.
