JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU) today announced that San Diego will be the next city in the airline’s network to be served by Mint flights, as JetBlue executes its plan to expand Mint nationally on transcontinental routes.

Mint – the airline’s award-winning approach to premium travel featuring the longest fully-flat bed seating in the U.S. domestic premium market (b), fully enclosed private suites and a 15-inch flat screen with complimentary entertainment options – will launch between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (SAN) and San Diego International Airport (SAN) on August 15, 2017, offering a new flat-bed experience with curated amenities for travelers in southern California. Seats are on sale starting today with introductory fares starting at $499 one way (a).

Mint has exceeded the airline’s expectations since its launch in 2014, transforming the financial performance of JetBlue’s transcontinental franchise while winning over customers and stimulating a new market for premium travel.

“When Mint lands in San Diego JetBlue will transform another market where customers have faced outdated and overpriced ‘business class’ choices for too long,” said Marty St. George, executive vice president commercial and planning, JetBlue. “We can’t wait to show even more of our customers in southern California the most comfortable way to fly from coast-to-coast.”

JetBlue’s expansion of Mint will allow the airline to capture an immediate opportunity to introduce competition in east and west coast markets where customers are faced with a decreasing number of choices and where other carriers sell dated business class options at a high cost. A second daily roundtrip Mint flight between San Diego and New York, as well as Mint service between San Diego and Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) will start later in 2017.

This wave of Mint expansion will bring new transcontinental competition to San Diego, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas and Seattle for the first time – while also increasing options from New York (JFK), Boston, Los Angeles (LAX) and San Francisco. Once completed, JetBlue will offer up to 70-plus daily Mint flights to 13 destinations across the east coast, west coast and Caribbean.
