Boston’s Top Airline Brings Its Acclaimed Premium Service to Logan

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU), Boston’s No. 1 airline, today announced the start of its acclaimed Mint service at Boston’s Logan International Airport (BOS). JetBlue is now the only airline in Boston to offer regularly-scheduled flights with fully lie-flat seating on domestic routes.

Service between Boston and San Francisco International Airport (SFO) begins today with one Mint flight offered in each direction. In the coming months, Mint will be offered on all three daily roundtrips between the two cities. Additionally, seasonal Mint service between Boston and Barbados' Grantley Adams International Airport (BGI) takes off this Saturday and will operate on Saturdays through April 30, 2016. This October, Mint service between Boston and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) will take to the skies with up to three daily roundtrips eventually offered.

“JetBlue travelers in Boston are craving a premium experience and starting today they can experience service unlike anything offered by any other another airline at Logan,” said Marty St. George, executive vice president commercial and planning at JetBlue. “Mint has been a game changer in the transcontinental market in New York and we can't wait for it to do the same in Boston.”

Since launching Mint in June 2014, JetBlue has again disrupted the air travel status quo with a thoughtful product and offering exceptional service from specially trained JetBlue crewmembers. JetBlue's highly personalized inflight service is matched by the Mint aircraft itself, which includes private suites, the longest fully-flat bed in the U.S. domestic market (a), tapas-style dining, custom amenity kits, a 15-inch flat screen with 100+ channels of DIRECTV® programming and more than 100 channels of SiriusXM® satellite radio, and free Fly-Fi broadband Internet.
