JetBlue Airways which offers four flights a week into the Spice Isle has announced plans to launch its premium travel experience known as “Mint” to travellers to Grenada.
The Grenada Tourism Authority (GTA) announced last week Wednesday at a press conference that the service will be offered from January 2017, making Grenada the fifth Mint market in the Caribbean region.
“We are thrilled to introduce Mint to a fifth Caribbean route, where customers are paying too much for so-called premium service,” said Vice President Network Planning at JetBlue, Dave Clark at the press briefing.
“Our customers are quickly discovering Grenada and its world class beaches, attractions, and luxury resorts. Now customers traveling between New York and this Caribbean gem can enjoy the finest service and comfort during their flight,” he said.
Persons travelling to Grenada using the service will enjoy the longest fully-flat bed in the U.S. domestic premium market that will include four private suites, and a 15-inch flat screen with complimentary entertainment options.
Customers will also enjoy a signature cocktail, a tapas-style menu, fresh espresso from the first purpose-built cappuccino machine for a U.S. airline, amenity kits by Birchbox, and dessert from Blue Marble and Mah-ze-Dahr Bakery.
Newly appointed Minister for Tourism and Civil Aviation, Dr. Clarice Modeste-Curwen has endorsed this new service offered by JetBlue on the Grenadian market.
“JetBlue has proven to be a very strategic airline partner for Grenada, offering a flight service from New York, our largest visitor source market,” said Modeste-Curwen.
“The responses from visitors and the Grenadian Diaspora have been very positive, so much so that the initial twice-weekly flights increased to four flights per week. We are pleased to welcome this premium experience that gives travelers more options,” she remarked.
There will also be benefit from JetBlue’s A321 with Mint experience; a feature that will highlight the airline’s new core experience for customers seated throughout the entire aircraft.
Features of the A321 core interior include: 10-inch television screens offering free entertainment, comfortable seats with the most legroom in coach and power outlets accessible to all customers.
JetBlue’s popular marketplace, a self-serve station full of free snacks, sodas and water for customers to enjoy at their convenience, is also available throughout the flight.
The A321 aircraft also offers JetBlue’s free Fly-Fi high-speed broadband Internet service when flying over the continental U.S., access to JetBlue’s Hub content on personal devices and first-run Hollywood movies.
