JetBlue Offers Free Flights to Families and Domestic Partners of Orlando Shooting Victims

JetBlue Airways says it is providing free seats when available on flights to and from Orlando, Florida, for immediate family and domestic partners of people who were killed or injured in the weekend shooting at an Orlando nightclub.

The airline is also waiving ticket-change fees for customers booked on flights to or from Orlando.

“We want to do our part to help the victims of this tragedy, as well as support the Orlando community through this difficult time,” the airline wrote on their website.

New York-based JetBlue is one of the largest airlines at Orlando International Airport, with about 14 percent of the market, according to Department of Transportation figures. The airline also has a training center there.

Family members and domestic partners can contact 1-800-JETBLUE for more details on their travel assistance.

The airline is not sure how long the free travel will last because they are still learning funeral dates.

“Our hearts are with the victims, their families and friends and the Orlando Community,” the airline stated.
