JetBlue to honour 100,000 healthcare workers with flight certificates and plans a flyover salute

JetBlue,  the US budget new New York's hometown airline carrier has just launched a special programme called JetBlue Healthcare Hero, which will honour 100,000 healthcare workers with roundtrip flight certificates for two to anywhere JetBlue flies.

“JetBlue’s mission of inspiring humanity is stronger now more than ever”

Nominate Your JetBlue Healthcare Hero


To kick off the program, JetBlue is donating pairs of roundtrip flight certificates for 10,000 healthcare workers at the Mount Sinai Health System, including their Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island campuses, as well as at NYC Health + Hospitals, the largest public healthcare system in the United States with more than 70 locations across the city’s five boroughs.

JetBlue is now calling on customers to thank the healthcare heroes in their life – from doctors and nurses to pharmacists, therapists, social workers, public health administrators and more – by nominating them for a chance to receive one of 90,000 pairs of roundtrip flight certificates for two to use when the time is right. Starting today through May 15, 2020, customers can submit a brief description of why they are nominating their healthcare hero (a). For more information and full terms, please visit jetblue.com/healthcarehero.



JetBlue Crewmembers Invited to Celebrate Their Own Healthcare Heroes


Over the past 20 years, first responders have been at the heart of JetBlue. Many retired police officers, firefighters, EMTs, nurses and military personnel are actively employed across the airline. With this camaraderie in mind, JetBlue is providing its almost 23,000 crewmembers with roundtrip flight certificates to gift to the healthcare heroes in their life.
