Along with an epic flyover in New York City on Thursday night, JetBlue is honoring healthcare workers and first responders with major flight giveaways.
“JetBlue’s mission of inspiring humanity is stronger now more than ever,” the president and chief operating officer of JetBlue, Joanna Geraghty, said in a statement provided to T+L. “We applaud the healthcare workers who are helping us get through this challenging time and inspiring humanity along the way. This is an opportunity for us to fly it forward and show our appreciation for the heroic efforts of medical professionals, first responders and public servants – not just here in our home of New York but around the country as well.”
With their 'Healthcare Hero' initiative announced on Wednesday, the airline will provide 100,000 healthcare workers with roundtrip flight certificates for two to anywhere JetBlue flies — with at least 10,000 pairs of tickets being given to workers at the Mount Sinai Health system and NYC Health + Hospitals, the city’s public health system.
