Lie-Flat to Latin America: JetBlue to Fly Popular Mint Service to Costa Rica

New Seasonal Saturday Mint Flights Between New York-JFK and Liberia Take Off This Fall.

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.

With the addition of Liberia, JetBlue will now serve 12 cities with Mint flights from its New York-JFK focus city.

No other airline in Boston offers a premium lie-flat seat on as many routes.

Since launching in 2014, Mint has become a favorite way for celebrities, technology executives, creatives, and entrepreneurs to travel. Mint was recognized by Fast Company’s Innovation By Design Awards, which honors innovative and disruptive design that pushes boundaries and seeks to change the world.

All customers will benefit from JetBlue’s new Airbus A321 with Mint aircraft, which features the airline’s new core experience for customers seated throughout the entire aircraft.

Mint offers a completely rethought design and a more personal approach to service, addressing the needs of the modern traveler. Mint features exceptional hospitality from specially trained crewmembers.

Favorite Mint features include lie-flat seating, a signature cocktail, a tapas-style menu by New York City restaurant Saxon + Parole, fresh espresso from the first purpose-built cappuccino machine for a U.S. airline, amenity kits by Hayward and Hopper, and dessert from local artisanal ice cream makers based in Mint cities.

Features of the A321 core interior include 10-inch television screens offering free entertainment, comfortable seats with the most legroom in coach (a) and power outlets accessible to all customers. JetBlue’s popular marketplace, a self-serve station full of free snacks, sodas and water for customers to enjoy at their convenience, is also available throughout the flight.
