JetBlue adds an extra layer of cool to its Mint cabin in-flight offering.
The airline has partnered with ice cream artisans in key destinations of Boston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and San Francisco with a selection of flavours representing the region.
“These are the local artisanal ice creams you wait in line for on a hot summer night, not the industrial dairy dessert products that you’d find in other premium cabins,” said Jamie Perry, vice president of marketing. “Mint’s expansion gives us the opportunity to discover amazing new local partners across our network bringing the best ingredients and scrumptious sweets to our customers.”
The ice cream makers for JetBlue’s local scoop offering are :
Blue Marble: This Brooklyn shop had been serving ridiculously delicious organic ice cream in Mint since the launch of the service in 2014.
