JetBlue announced Thursday 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.

Starting December 2018, JetBlue will offer fully lie-flat seats, artisanal dining options, the most free inflight entertainment, revitalizing amenities and more, on its JFK to Liberia (Costa Rica) route.

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), JetBlue’s first Mint city in Latin America.

“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.”

Costa Rica’s 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 United States.

Saturday Mint Schedule between New York (JFK) and Liberia (LIR): Beginning December 15, 2018,

  • JFK – LIR Flight #1691 – 10:25 a.m. – 2:49 p.m.
  • LIR – JFK Flight #1692 – 4:15 p.m. – 10:14 p.m.

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.
