JetBlue’s Mint Service Touches Down in St. Lucia
Prime Minister, Honorable Allen Chastanet and acting Chief Executive Officer of the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority, Mrs. Tiffany Howard were among officials that welcomed the inaugural JetBlue Mint service on Saturday November 3, 2018.
The flight originating out of Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) landed at the Hewanorra International Airport (UVF) at noon on November 3.
The Saint Lucia Tourism Authority is ecstatic about the new service. While it is not a new flight, JetBlue has added its premium Mint service to the route, which allows passengers the luxury of kicking back and relaxing on fully lie-flat seats.
Each seat features cushions with adjustable firmness and a massage feature, a comforter and pillow, and ergonomic touches. In addition, the Mint service provides individualized seatback TVs and unlimited snacks.
The SLTA planned a welcome ceremony to commemorate this new service with a pannist, and masqueraders who are expected to greet passengers on the tarmac followed by a short reception in the VIP Lounge of the Hewanorra International Airport.
SLTA Director of Marketing for the USA, Kelly Fontenelle–Clarke; General Manager for JetBlue Airways, Marcelline Palton; and Regional Manager for LATAM/Caribbean-Product, JetBlue and JetBlue Vacations, Wendy Jurngerkes also attended the ceremony.
