JetBlue, a New York based airline, is offering free flights to the families of the victims of Sunday’s mass shooting at an Orlando gay club.
Today in the Sky reported spokesman of the airline, Doug McGraw, as confirming the offer.
“JetBlue is providing free seats on its available flights to/from Orlando for immediate family and domestic partners of victims who were killed or injured. Those family members and domestic partners requiring travel assistance can contact 1-800-JETBLUE for details.”
JetBlue is also waiving change fees for customers who wish to change their travel plans in the wake of the tragedy. Fliers ticketed to fly through Orlando from Sunday through Tuesday will be allowed to make a change to their itineraries without paying the customary change fee.
Forty-nine people were reportedly killed and another 50 were injured in the Sunday attack at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando.
New York-based JetBlue has a sizable presence in Orlando, where it operates a base and maintains support facilities.
