JetBlue Adds 30 New Routes, Plus Mint Service Out of EWR

JetBlue Adds 30 New Routes, Plus Mint Service Out of EWR

JetBlue has announced it is adding 30 new domestic routes to serve customers in markets where domestic travel is showing some signs of strength. With business travel facing a less certain recovery timeline, the new routes offer JetBlue the opportunity to generate revenue, bring aircraft back into service that would otherwise sit idle, and add more flying opportunities for JetBlue crewmembers.

The expanded service focuses on:

  • Growing relevance in JetBlue’s focus cities
  • Launch Mint flights between Newark and LAX/SFO
  • Playing to JetBlue’s strength in Florida with new point-to-point routes

New markets will be phased in between July and October. Seats on all new routes are now available for purchase.

“Coronavirus has transformed airline route maps, and as we begin to see small signs of recovery, we continue to be flexible with our network plans to respond to demand trends and generate cash in support of our business,” said Scott Laurence, head of revenue and planning in a press release.

Mint Between the Garden State and the Golden State

JetBlue will expand its successful Mint service in the broader metro area to Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) with daily nonstop service to both Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and San Francisco International Airport (SFO).

Favorite Mint features include lie-flat seating – including individual suites with sliding privacy doors, tapas style dining, 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.
