JetBlue is again flexing its charitable muscles, this time with a great opportunity for US military veterans and their companions!

I love to see airlines give back to the community, and I think this is a terrific way to honor our veterans!

Are You A US Veteran Heres How To Get 4 FREE Round Trip Flights To New Orleans From 3 US Cities
Visit the Historic PT-305 With JetBlue

I’ll give you the details of this heartwarming deal.

Free Flights (And More!) for US Military Veterans

Link:   PT-305 Event

JetBlue is making it easier for US veterans and their travel companions to visit The National WWII Museum in New Orleans and the historic PT-305 boat through April 7, 2018.  JetBlue is giving veterans and 3 companions complimentary round-trip airfare to New Orleans from 3 of their hubs:

  • Boston
  • Fort Lauderdale
  • New York City (JFK)

Veterans will also receive free museum admission.

To get these freebies, you’ll have to buy a ride aboard the PT-305, the worlds only fully restored combat-veteran PT boat in operation.

It will cost $305 for veterans, seniors, military, and children, and $175 for active duty military in uniform the day of the ride.  But WWII veterans will get the boat ride (and everything else!) for FREE!

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Only 4 free round-trip tickets per party
  • You must either call  8778133329 x 257 or email travel@nationalww2museum.org to get your free flights
  • You must prove you’re either an active-duty or retired US veteran when booking
  • Hotels, ground transportation, meals, etc. are NOT included
  • Availability is limited
  • Travel companions must purchase a PT-305 passage to get this veteran promotion
  • Children under 12 NOT eligible
  • Fridays and Saturdays only

This is an excellent opportunity for veterans and their family and friends to head south for a history trip (and to a nice, warm climate!).  And because things like hotels and ground transportation aren’t included with this deal, remember that there are plenty of ways to get those things free with miles & points!

For example, you can use the rewards you earn from the Barclaycard Arrival Plus to negate the cost of car rentals, Airbnb, hotels, and more!  Or you can transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points you earn from cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred to stay at one of the many Hyatt hotels in the area.  Team member Harlan stayed at the Hyatt French Quarter a few years ago, and loved its location and swimming pool.

Bottom Line

Through April 7, 2018, JetBlue is giving US veterans and their travel companions FREE round-trip airfare to New Orleans from Boston, Fort Lauderdale, and New York City to visit The National WWII Museum and the historic PT-305 boat.  But each traveler will have to buy a ride on the PT-305 to qualify for this deal.

The Million Mile Secrets team loves JetBlue because of their extra legroom, yummy snacks, and free Wi-Fi.  And also because they really seem to care about the community!
