JetBlue Airways will continue to limit the number of seats for sale on its flights through September 8, allowing the airline to block middle seats.
The company issued the following statement, “Middle seats are blocked for purchase on our larger aircraft, and most aisle seats are blocked for purchase on our smaller aircraft. Our crewmembers are proactively reviewing seat assignments to help ensure as much personal space as possible. In addition, we are creating buffer zones around all inflight crewmember jumpseats, to allow for added crewmember and customer safety.”
Other enhanced health and safety protocols include: As part of the check-in process, all travelers are now required to complete a coronavirus health declaration that acknowledges that they have not tested positive, experienced symptoms (including a fever) or been in recent contact with anyone who has tested positive.
To reduce touchpoints at the airport, JetBlue is encouraging all customers to download the JetBlue app. Using the app, customers can check-in for a flight, add bags to a reservation, and select a seat. For a touchless boarding experience, customers can self-scan the boarding pass within the app when ready to board.
