JetBlue today announced two new routes to feature the airline’s Mint premium service with lie-flat seating.

Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Costa Rica’s Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport in Liberia (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 U.S. With the addition of Liberia, JetBlue will now serve 12 cities with Mint flights from its New York-JFK focus city.
