JetBlue Airways (New York) announced plans to offer its Mint experience from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Barbados (BGI) and Aruba (AUA), two of its most popular Caribbean routes. The new seasonal service begins in November.
JetBlue launched its premium Mint service on transcontinental routes in June 2014.
JetBlue’s Mint experience to the islands will add a Caribbean twist to some customer favorites, including the tapas-style menu curated by New York City restaurant Saxon+Parole, organic desserts by Blue Marble Ice Cream, a sweet treat from Mah-ze-Dahr Bakery, and customized amenity kits from Birchbox.
Between November 7, 2015 and April 30, 2016, JetBlue will operate one roundtrip on Saturdays to each Caribbean location. And between December 19, 2015 and January 4, 2016 the airline will operate one roundtrip flight daily for the busy holiday travel season.
