JetBlue, an American low-cost airline, is helping an impressive amount of healthcare workers take some well-deserved time off.

The airline is giving away 100,000 pairs of round-trip flights to healthcare workers across the United States.

“They’ve earned our love, our gratitude, and some serious R&R,” the airline said. Nominations are currently open on the JetBlue website. While you can’t nominate yourself, the contest’s rules say you can nominate as many other people as you want.

The 100,000 winners will receive two flights to anywhere JetBlue flies. All winners have to do is pay flight taxes and fees.

The contest states that 90,000 winners will be selected from random draws and 10,000 pairs of flights will be donated to New York City hospital healthcare workers, the city where the airline is headquartered.

To be eligible, a person must be a healthcare worker, first responder, or public health worker who is “actively serving on the frontlines of the COVID-19 response.”

Contest entries are asked to be submitted before May 16 and the winners will be drawn on May 18.

On April 28, JetBlue became one of the first American airlines to require all passengers to wear face masks during travel.
