JetBlue offering free flights for voters to flee country if their candidate loses

If your presidential candidate doesn't win this election season, you may get the chance to flee the country, on Jet Blue's dime.

In a press release, JetBlue senior vice president Marty St. George said that he's heard countless numbers of people threaten to leave the country if their candidate doesn't win.

In the spirit of fun, he's decided to give over 1,000 people a break if their vote for President Barack Obama or Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney doesn't go their way.

"Fun is one of our five founding values, and in this spirit we decided to give people a chance to recover from the political noise and follow through on their claim to skip town if their candidate comes up short... most importantly, we want to highlight the freedom we have as Americans to exercise our right to vote and encourage everyone to do their part on Nov. 6. Live free or Fly!"

Jet blue is offering 1,006 certificates for one of their 21 international destinations, which equals 2012 seats, round trip.

The announcement came on the heels of the first presidential debate between Romney and Obama.

Travelers who visit and pick their choice are entered to win.

Winners will be contacted through email.
