Public Service Professionals Receive Free Flights to Honor the Fallen in Person
JetBlue has a long history of supporting public service professionals in our hometown of New York as well as numerous places that JetBlue crewmembers live and work. We offer available seats so they can attend funeral services for those fallen in the line of duty.
It’s not a service that we take lightly, or that we do for publicity. We simply believe that these initiatives are the right thing to do. With about 10% of JetBlue crewmembers coming from fire and emergency response, or military and law enforcement backgrounds, we respect these individuals for the service they provide their communities.
In 2016, we extended this offer to public service professionals in the aftermath of the Dallas and Orlando shootings. It’s our honor to offer something back to the men and women who put themselves on the line each day.
