“Ready for Takeoff” to be viewed by millions of travelers on JetBlue Airways flights.
Thanks to our friends at New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) and JetBlue, The Viscardi Center is once again the focus of an in-flight video feature playing on the seatbacks of all JetBlue Airways flights during the month of November — reaching millions of flyers across the U.S. Produced by NYIT film students, “Ready for Takeoff” showcases how experiences provided by JetBlue and Viscardi have broadened horizons for students with disabilities at the Henry Viscardi School.
As showcased in the video, JetBlue annually provides Viscardi students with an exclusive airport and travel experience. Students, some of whom haven’t traveled by air before, have the opportunity to check-in at JFK, fly to Boston, eat lunch with the crew, and then fly back home to New York. This year, Viscardi high school seniors also enjoyed a full afternoon at the New England Aquarium.
Students aren’t the only ones learning during these flights: throughout the hands-on experience, JetBlue’s crew members identify possible ways to improve service and meet the needs of every traveler.
Extended versions of the clip are in production and will be submitted to a variety of film festivals in the coming months.
Now, we invite you to sit back and watch the video feature below!
