JetBlue TrueBlue members flying with their four-legged companions will now earn points through a new JetPaws pet program. JetBlue members will earn two bonus points for each one-way flight they fly with a small dog or cat. Members can also download an e-booklet highlighting pet-friendly hotels and places you and your pet can visit when traveling to JetBlue’s destination cities. To keep your pet looking their best, JetBlue has stylish polos and hoodies with the JetBlue logo for your pet and customers can also purchase a custom-made pet carrier ($45) or travel kit ($25), which includes a pet blanket, rubber bone and travel dish. “With more than 80,000 pets traveling on JetBlue each year, the JetPaws program is designed to make traveling with pets smooth from start to finish, offering valuable TrueBlue points along the way,” said Kim Ruvolo, Brand Manager of JetBlue Airways.
Up to four small cats or dogs are allowed in the cabin of JetBlue aircraft and each customer can bring one pet less than 20 pounds (including the pet carrier). The nonrefundable fee to bring a pet onboard is $100 each way, which is a relative bargain compared to many airlines. Your pet and carrier will count as your one personal item.
