Last week JetBlue announced two new MINT routes from Boston and expansion of existing MINT services, adding to its MINT service expansion announced in April. With the latest announcement, JetBlue will be operating more than 80 MINT flights each day on over 20 routes!
New MINT services from Boston to Las Vegas
The new non-stop services will make JetBlue the only carrier with lie-flat seats between Boston and the Sin City. This complements JetBlue’s previously-announced new MINT service between New York City and the Sin City which will be launched this November. The new service will operate twice daily starting January 4, 2018. Seats are already on sale.
Want to be on the inauguration flight out of Las Vegas? It would cost you $599 and there are only two tickets left on each flight. Alternatively you can redeem using either 30,000 US Bank Flexperk points or 30,000 Amex points if you have the Business Platinum Card,
Start dates for MINT services to Seattle
JetBlue also announced this week the starting dates for MINT services to Seattle from Boston and New York. The two daily flights between Boston and Seattle will be launched in February 2018, while the first MINT service between New York and Seattle will launch in April 2018. A second MINT flight between New York and Seattle will be added in late 2018.
Growth at SFO and LAX
JetBlue will also expands in two key California markets, adding one daily MINT service each between Boston and SFO and between New York JFK and LAX. With the latest addition, JetBlue will have 5 daily MINT flights between Boston and SFO, and 7 daily MINT flights between New York and LAX.
Expansion in Caribbean
Adding to its current expansive coverage in the Caribbean, JetBlue plans to add second Saturday seasonal roundtrip Mint flights between:
- New York-JFK and St. Maarten (SXM) beginning January 13, 2018
- Boston and Aruba (AUA) beginning February 17, 2018
- Boston and St. Maarten (SXM) beginning February 17, 2018
Additionally, Mint service between both New York and Boston to Aruba will operate daily the week of the President’s Day holiday (February 15 – 26). All seasonal Mint routes in the Caribbean operates through April 2018.
JetBlue Schedule extended to May 1, 2018
JetBlue’s schedule is now extended to May 1, 2018. If you book early enough, you can get some pretty good price for MINT services, such as SFO to Fort Lauderdale for $449, which I booked for my family of five coming back from Florida at the end of this December, and I booked it on the date schedule was extended!
