(Newser) – JetBlue says it stands with the victims of the Orlando mass shooting—and it's doing what it can to help their families. The airline is offering free flights to and from Orlando for the immediate family members and domestic partners of victims, and it has waived change fees for people who need to change travel plans involving the city. "Our thoughts are with the victims and their loved ones," the airline said in a statement. The airline is based in New York, but it maintains a base in Orlando, which is home to its JetBlue University training center and many of its 19,000 crew members, USA Today reports. The airline says it's also making a charitable donation to help the victims and their families. (Read more JetBlue stories.)
