Latex Allergies
Our cleaners and maintenance group use non-latex products for cleaning the plane. However, there is always a possibility that another customer will bring latex products on the aircraft.

Nut Allergies

JetBlue does not serve peanuts and has no immediate plans to serve peanuts; however, we cannot guarantee that our aircraft or snacks will be 100% free of peanuts, peanut material or peanut products.

"Tree nuts" such as almonds, cashews, pistachios, walnuts, etc. may be served on JetBlue flights. For a full list of our onboard snacks & beverages, Click Here

There is a possibility that some food items served come from facilities that also manufacture products that may contain peanuts, peanut material or peanut products.

We cannot prevent other customers from bringing their own peanuts or peanut products onboard and consuming these items inflight. However, we ask that you inform the head Inflight crewmember upon boarding the aircraft of your severe nut allergy. Upon request, an Inflight crewmember will create a buffer zone one row in front and one row behind the allergic person. The Inflight crewmember will ask customers seated in the buffer zone to refrain from consuming any nut containing products they have brought onboard and will not serve any nut containing products to these rows.

JetBlue will offer a full refund to customers for whom these conditions make it impossible to travel.


Inflight Accommodations

We cannot prevent other customers from bringing their own peanuts or peanut products onboard and consuming these items inflight. However, we ask that you inform the head Inflight crewmember upon boarding the aircraft of your severe nut allergy. Upon request, an Inflight crewmember will create a buffer zone one row in front and one row behind the allergic person to encompass a total of three rows. The Inflight crewmember will ask customers seated in the buffer zone to refrain from consuming any nut containing products they have brought onboard and will not serve any nut containing products to these rows. We cannot guarantee that a customer will not consume any peanut product they may have brought onboard.

We will not identify the allergic passenger during the briefing. We will offer to reseat passengers if necessary. While we will not serve any nut-containing products to passengers in the buffer zone, products that may contain trace amounts of nuts can be served within the buffer zone. We do not make any onboard announcements regarding the nut allergy.

Customers may request Silent Boarding at the gate to board early if they would like to personally wipe down their seat. 

JetBlue will offer a full refund to customers for whom these conditions make it impossible to travel.

Aircraft Information

As a key component in upholding the appearance of our aircraft, our fleet is subjected to several levels of cleaning on a regular basis. Interior cleaning, which addresses the lavatories, galleys, seating areas and all carpeted areas during each scheduled stop. On a nightly basis, each aircraft undergoes a more comprehensive interior cleaning process that includes more detailed elements and areas not covered during the routine cleaning during each stop. Such additional areas consist of, but not limited to: trays tables, side walls, coffee pots etc. The exterior of the aircraft, weather permitting, is cleaned on a 120 day cycle. Dry wash and polish are also on a 120 day cycle.

Customers may request to board early if they would like to personally wipe down their seat prior to departure. 

Our aircraft are equipped with the following types of air filtration system:         

E190

  • There are 2 ea recirculation filters with HEPA* efficiency for filtration of recirculated air
  • There are 2 ea ozone filters for removing ozone from fresh air

A320

  • There are 2 ea recirculation filters with HEPA* efficiency for filtration of recirculated air
  • There are 2 ea ozone filters for removing ozone from fresh air

A321

  • There are 2 ea recirculation filters with HEPA* efficiency for filtration of recirculated air
  • There are 2 ea ozone filters for removing ozone from fresh air

HEPA* - High-Efficiency Particulate Air or HEPA is a type of air filter. Filters meeting the HEPA standard have many applications, including use in medical facilities, automobiles, aircraft, and homes. The filter must satisfy certain standards of efficiency such as those set by the United States Department of Energy (DOE). To qualify as HEPA by US government standards, an air filter must remove 99.97% of all particles greater than 0.3 microns from the air that passes through.
