JetBlue Teams Up with Uber to Offer Free Rides to the Airport
Passengers can now claim a $20 voucher to cover airport transfers, but bookings need to be made before the end January
Customers of JetBlue’s flight and hotel packages traveling to Orlando (MCO), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), or Las Vegas (LAS) can get a $20 voucher to cover their Uber trip to or from the airport if they book before the end of the month.
From now until January 31, customers who book packages in those select destinations through JetBlue Vacations can get a free voucher to cover their airport transfers. The offer was developed by the airline in partnership with Uber for Business.
To claim your voucher, click on the ‘add extras’ tab on the JetBlue site before checkout. You’ll then receive the $20 voucher by email 24 hours before your departure.
The voucher can be used to travel between your home or office and the airport or from the airport to your hotel. You must be picked up or dropped off within a certain, limited geographic radius around the airport, and the voucher is only valid within two weeks of the day it’s sent.
Andres Barry, president of JetBlue Travel Products, said the airline hopes to “expand the program to many more domestic destinations” in the coming months.
“We are excited to give our customers even more opportunities to save on their next vacation with Uber,” he said. “Whether you’re soaking up the sun or heading to a theme park for your next vacation, your travel experience should be seamless. Our work with Uber reflects our goal to add even more value to the customer experience.”
Susan Anderson, global head for Uber for Business, said: “At Uber for Business we help organizations like JetBlue Vacations treat every customer like a VIP, by providing elevated travel experiences and delighting adventurers at every step of their journey.”
The rideshare vouchers come in addition to JetBlue Vacations’ existing perks, including earlier boarding, free inflight alcoholic beverages, and access to 24/7 customer support.
Customers traveling to international destinations with JetBlue Vacations benefit from even more bonuses through the airline’s Insider Experience program. The program connects vacationers with local experts who use insider knowledge to assist them at every stage of their trip, from an airport meet-and-greet to free airport transfers and concierge services at their accommodation. JetBlue’s new partnership with Uber will bring some of these benefits stateside for domestic travelers.
