New Seasonal Saturday Mint Flights Between New York-JFK and Liberia
Take Off This Fall Along With Lie-Flat Premium Service Between Boston
and St. Lucia

Mint Flights to St. Maarten Resume From New York-JFK and Expand From
Boston

Latest JetBlue Expansion Now Brings Mint to 15 Cities on 23 Routes

JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU) today announced it is once again answering calls
from customers for more Mint flights with the addition of two new routes
to feature the airline's popular premium service with lie-flat seating.
Later this year, JetBlue will begin operating seasonal Saturday Mint
service between New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK)
and Liberia, Costa Rica's Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport
(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. In Boston, where JetBlue is the top airline in
both number of flights and number of customers, new St. Lucia Mint
service will bring Mint to nine routes from Logan. No other airline in
Boston offers a premium lie-flat seat on as many routes.
