JetBlue Offering Free Seats to Orlando for Families, Partners of 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.

"Like many of you, we continue to watch reports of the Orlando nightclub shooting with great sadness," JetBlue's site read. "Our thoughts are with the victims and their loved ones."

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.

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

Anyone with questions or needing travel assistance was encouraged to call 1-800-JETBLUE for details.
