An Airbus A320 operated by JetBlue Airways as flight B61295 to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, Texas, was involved in a runway incursion incident with a Caribbean Airlines Boeing 737-800 (9Y-JMF).
Both aircraft were not damaged and there were no injuries.
Caribbean Airlines flight BW526 had landed on runway 22L at 22:27 hours local time following a flight from Georgetown-Cheddi Jagan International Airport in Guyana. The airplane took exit J and continued taxiing on taxiway J towards the terminal.
At the same time JetBlue 1295 received takeoff clearance on the parallel runway 22R. When the JetBlue aircraft began accelerating for takeoff, flight BW526 began crossing this runway.
BW526 failed to respond to the Tower controller's instructions to hold short, and the controller then instructed JetBlue 1295 to abort the takeoff. The Airbus then left the runway via taxiway Golf.

Distance between the intersections of taxiways Golf and Juliet on runway 22R is about 845 m (2770 ft).
