JetBlue to add popular Mint service to Caribbean routes

JetblueNEW YORK - JetBlue has announced it is once again answering calls from customers for more Mint flights with the addition of two new routes to feature the airline’s popular premium service with lie-flat seating. Later this year, JetBlue will begin operating seasonal Saturday Mint service between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Liberia, Costa Rica’s Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR), and between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and St Lucia’s Hewanorra International Airport (UVF).

“Adding Mint between these cities means travelers on these routes can finally enjoy a first-class flying experience,” said Marty St George, executive vice president commercial and planning, JetBlue. “When Mint first launched more than four years ago, we knew we had created an unmatchable premium experience, but we could have never imagined Mint would be landing in well over a dozen destinations in such a short time.”

Liberia becomes JetBlue’s first Mint city in Latin America and JetBlue will be the only airline to operate regularly scheduled flights with a lie-flat premium seat between Costa Rica and the US. With the addition of Liberia, JetBlue will now serve 12 cities with Mint flights from its New York-JFK focus city. In Boston, where JetBlue is the top airline in both number of flights and number of customers, new St Lucia Mint service will bring Mint to nine routes from Logan. No other airline in Boston offers a premium lie-flat seat on as many routes.

JetBlue also announced that Saturday Mint flights to St Maarten’s Princess Juliana International Airport (SXM) from New York-JFK will resume in February 2019. Additionally, the airline will launch new Saturday Mint service to St Maarten from Boston, also in February 2019. JetBlue’s Mint flights to St Maarten are part of the airline’s broader commitment to the Caribbean destination as it increases capacity in the market.
