On Friday (February 26, 2021), JetBlue announced that they will receive their first Airbus A321neo aircraft configured with the carrier’s all new Premium Mint® onboard experience. The aircraft will arrive at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport tonight from the Airbus production facility in Hamburg, Germany. The A321neo features 16 Mint suites, including two Mint Studios, as well as 144 main cabin seats and will initially operate on select flights between New York-JFK and Los Angeles (LAX) this summer. The aircraft, Tail Number N2105J, has been named ‘NEO Mintality’ and expands the JetBlue fleet to 270 aircraft, including 16 A321neos.
In Friday’s announcement, JetBlue’s Head of Marketing and Loyalty, Jayne O’Brien, said,
“With so much excitement around JetBlue’s London plans, we’re delighted to also introduce our fabulous, all-new transatlantic Mint suites to customers on select flights within the U.S. Our reimagined Mint and award-winning core experience, combined with the superior economics of the A321neo aircraft, will position JetBlue to compete effectively and add relevance to our customers in Mint markets.”
Also commenting on the aircraft delivery, Airbus Americas SVP – Customers, Chris Jones, added,
“JetBlue continues to leverage the versatility of the A321neo — now featuring JetBlue’s Mint cabin design. The A321neo is ideally suited to the North American market with a winning combination of increased range and lower operating costs thanks to the aircraft’s reduced fuel burn. The passenger friendliness associated with the A321 cabin blend very well with these enhanced operating efficiencies and are ideally suited to meet the demands of trans-continental travel - perfect for JetBlue’s US routes between JFK and LAX this summer.”
