WASHINGTON (SBG) – JetBlue is applauding hard-working healthcare heroes by offering 100,000 pairs of roundtrip flights, free of charge.

The program kicks off with 10,000 roundtrip tickets awarded to workers at the Mount Sinai Health System in New York, including the Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island campuses, along with NYC Health + Hospitals.

Now through May 15, 2020, you can nominate someone in your life -- whether it's a social worker, therapist, pharmacist or nurse -- who deserves a break when the time is right. The remaining 90,000 tickets will be given out to nominees selected in a random drawing.

No purchase is necessary to participate. JetBlue says nominees will only pay flight taxes and fees.
