RFTO film takes flight on JetBlue seat-backs during the month of November

Nov 08, 2019

If you are traveling during the Thanksgiving break, and happen to fly with JetBlue, watch our film! Speaking of JetBlue, we are proud to have taken part in the community partnership between the airline and Viscardi Center, which includes an annual air travel experience for students of the Henry Viscardi School (HVC), all of whom have severe physical disabilities. New York Institute of Technology students were shown how JetBlue has built a customized experience for HVS kids, developing its capacity to grow a diverse talent pipeline recruiting, hiring and supporting individuals with disabilities. #disabilityemploymentawareness #readyfortakeoff #nyitdidthat
