JetBlue to give flights to 100K healthcare workers

U.S. & World

(CNN) – JetBlue is giving 100,000 healthcare workers roundtrip flights for two to honor their work amid the coronavirus crisis.

It’s starting by giving flight certificates to 10,000 healthcare workers in New York City. Then it’s giving 90,000 pairs of flight certificates to medical professionals across the U.S.

The 90,000 will be selected from nominations from the public of “Healthcare Heroes” in their lives.

The recipients can use the certificates when the time is right to travel anywhere JetBlue flies.

JetBlue is calling the giveaway an opportunity to “fly it forward.” Also, JetBlue is doing a salute with a low-altitude flyover of New York City.

Three planes will do the flyover at 7 p.m. Thursday, to coincide with the daily clapping in “The Big Apple” to applaud healthcare and essential workers.
