Jet blue tiene restricciones para viajar en sus aviones para los no vacunados a la Republica Dominicana?

No restricciones! Usa la mascarilla todo el tiempo durante el vuelo y en el aeropuerto. Solamente tienes que llenar un testamento de su salud.

Non-profit groups from Dominican republic do not qualify for any of JetBlue’s sponsorship programs. Why ?
