JetBlue Airways is a low-cost airline based out of Queens, New York, with additional corporate offices in Utah and Florida.

  • There is no additional fee if you self-serve online at the JetBlue website.

Same-Day Confirmed Switches

  • No fare difference applies.
  • Must be made on the day of travel, beginning at midnight in the time zone of the departing flight

How to Avoid JetBlue Change Fees on Your Own

If you change your mind about your flight plans or need to change them due to unexpected circumstances, there are a few ways you can try to avoid some , or pay less overall in fees.

  1. Book a flight without cancellation or change fees: Some fares can be changed without change fees, but you'll need to verify this before booking if you want to avoid costly fees.
  2. Cancel within 24 hours of booking: You are eligible for a full refund in the original form of payment if you cancel your original plans and your flight is seven or more days away.
  3. Change your flight yourself. Use the online service instead of going through Customer Support to save the $25 fee.
  4. Only change one ticket: If the reason for the change can be resolved by only changing one ticket (i.e. someone needs to arrive home earlier than originally planned), consider only changing one ticket and allowing the rest of your party to stay on the same flight to avoid multiple fees.
  5. Consider a same-day switch: Depending on your fare type, this may be a better option.
  6. Request a waiver: You can ask for a waiver from JetBlue if your flight schedule is changed ahead of time. Check if they offer travel waivers for inclement weather or for extenuating/emergency circumstances. While there is no guarantee this will work, you don't know until you try.
