JetBlue airlines said Wednesday it will be offering free flights to police officers from around the country who wish to attend the funerals for the two slain NYPD cops killed over the weekend.
The airline said it will allow up to two cops from each department to fly at no charge from anywhere across its route network to New York City.
NYPD officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos
“We’re honored to do what we can to support the communities we serve, and our team has made flights available to law enforcement agencies … who wish to send representatives to New York to support their brethren,” said JetBlue spokeswoman Sharon Jones.
Officer Rafael Ramos’ funeral will be held Saturday at the Christ Tabernacle Church in Glendale, Queens, and is expected to be packed with cops from far and wide.
Funeral services for Officer Wenjian Liu have not been finalized, but JetBlue said it is working with a partner carrier to bring the cop’s relatives to New York from China at no charge.
Police departments looking to send representatives can send a written request to the airline at DearJetBlue@JetBlue.com.
