JetBlue Mint provides lie-flat seats between Boston and Costa Rica
Tourists visiting Costa Rica from Boston can now travel in style.
Low-cost airline JetBlue inaugurated on Saturday its well-regarded “Mint” service on its direct flight between Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR) in Liberia, Guancaste.
The Mint cabin features lie-flat seats, fine dining, large personal televisions and other first-class amenities. It will be offered once-weekly on Saturdays during the tourism high season:
- Departs Boston (BOS) at 7:19 a.m., arriving in Costa Rica (LIR) at 12:15 p.m.
- Departs Costa Rica (LIR) at 1:40 p.m., arriving in Boston (BOS) at 8:02 p.m.
JetBlue is the only airline to operate regularly scheduled flights with a lie-flat premium seat between Costa Rica and the U.S. It first offered the Mint cabin in flights to Costa Rica last December as part of its New York City (JFK)-Costa Rica (LIR) route.
In doing so, Liberia became JetBlue’s first Mint city in Latin America.
