Alaska Airlines Offering Free Flights To Orlando Victim's Families


Alaska Airlines has offered to provide free flights to the families of the victims in the Orlando shooting. The company wrote in a blog post it will provide flights to the spouses and domestic partners of the victims and their immediate families.

The blog post read, "Anyone who falls into one of those categories and needs to travel to Orlando can call 1-888-327-2755 for assistance."

Alaska Airlines also offered their condolences to the victims and their families in the post. "We are broken-hearted by the horrific events that unfolded in Orlando early Sunday. Over the past few days, we've heard from many of our fellow employees - both GLOBE members and not - that they too have been deeply affected and want to know what they can do to help."

The airline then decided the best way to help the victims would be to offer free flights for the victim's families as well as making a $25,000 contribution to non-profit organization OneOrlando.

Alaska Airlines concluded their post writing, "Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the victims and their families, and the greater LGBT community. From all of us at Alaska Airlines, we stand by you and will always believe that love conquers hate."


Other companies such as Disney have made contributions to OneOrlando in light of the recent shooting claiming 49 lives and wounding more than 53 others.
