JetBlue Airways said it is temporarily suspending change and cancel fees for new tickets purchases.

The police shift impacts flights booked starting February 27 through March 11, 2020 with travel to be completd by June 1, 2020.  There are no restrictions or reports of outbreaks of Covid-19 at any of the airline’s destinations as of the time of publication.

“Given our mission is to inspire humanity, we felt this suspension was an important way to live up to our crewmember and customer expectations during this uncertain time,” said the airline’s president, Joanna Geragh.

The airline said it was making change to encourage travelers to book flights with the knowledge that the booking can be cancelled, should the situation with the coronavirus change further.

The policy change includes fares booked via JetBlue Vacations and also with the airline’s basic economy fare, Blue Basic. Changes and cancellations can be made without any charges or fees.
