The company said that its expanded ‘Go Pack’ packages include 10 flights, good for the base fare for 10 round-trip tickets. Selected destinations to which the service is being offered from Boston include New York’s JFK, Long Beach, CA and San Juan, Puerto Rico. The offer is claimed to be the perfect fit for businesses that are looking to lock in a fixed price for travel. It is also ideal as a corporate recognition programme and will help families and friends looking to share tickets.

The firm’s director of revenue management, Roger Johnson, said, ‘We listen to what our customers want and based on their feedback we’ve expanded our Go Pack offering to 32 markets, up from our original offers of California and Boston to Washington D.C. which included just three markets. We’ve also extended the travel window to three months to give customers more time to use their pass. The convenience of last minute booking without the worry of sky-high pricing is the perfect reason for business travellers as well as those wanting to share passes with family, friends, or employees to take advantage of Go Pack. The best part is that those who purchase a Go Pack will enjoy the benefits of flying JetBlue with their first checked bag free, plenty of legroom, free snacks, 100 channels of onboard entertainment and the best customer service in the skies.’
