American Airlines, Hyatt partner to provide free flights to New York medical workers

Hyatt Hotels (NYSE: H) has announced it is partnering with American Airlines (NASDAQ: AAL) to provide free round trip flights to more than 4,000 doctors, nurses and others from NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst, the company said.

Every worker at the healthcare facility is included in the specially arranged package.

The trips will involve round-trip American Airlines flights to and from select destinations in both the United States and the Caribbean islands.

Hyatt Hotels, which saw its share value rise nearly 20% during April as investors bet on a quick rebound, will provide three-night stays at the vacation destinations chosen from the available options. The press release states that the healthcare workers will “be able to unwind with wellbeing experiences, world-class food and beverage menus, outdoor activities and more” while staying at the Hyatt.

Both participating companies are both also allowing loyalty program members to donate their points or miles as a thank-you gift to medical personnel.
