Earning Free Flight on JetBlue Now Group Effort


JetBlue has come up with a novel idea - Make earning points toward a free flight a group effort 



JetBlue has become the first U.S. airline to offer "pooling" of loyalty program points among members of a designated family or small group. 

JetBlue's TrueBlue Loyalty Program makes it easy for travelers to build and use their points as it does not have blackout dates when the points cannot be redeemed, and the loyalty points do not expire.

 

The average number of points for a reward trip is 12,000, and a one way flight can be redeemed for approximately 5,000 points. It's reasonable to conclude one family member or friend can fly free on the next vacation after a trip taken by an entire family. 

The Caribbean and Latin America now make up about one-third of JetBlue's route network, and the airline has become the largest carrier - in terms of capacity - in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, as it offers more flights than any other carrier. 

JetBlue is expanding further into the Caribbean region

On February 24, 2014 the airline begins service to Trinidad and Tobago with a daily round-trip flight between New York JFK and Port of Spain. On May 1 the carrier will add a second daily route to Port of Spain via Fort Lauderdale. 

Starting in December, JetBlue will offer daily non-stop flights from  JFK Airport and Fort Lauderdale to Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

JetBlue also offers flights to the following Caribbean islands

  • Aruba 
  • Barbados 
  • Bahamas (Nassau) 
  • Dominican Republic (La Romana, Puerto Plata, Punta Cana, Santo Domingo) 
  • Grand Cayman 
  • Jamaica (Montego Bay, Kingston) 
  • Puerto Rico (Aguadilla, Ponce, San Juan) 
  • St Maarten 
  • St Lucia (Hewanorra Airport) 
  • Turks & Caicos 
  • USVI (St Thomas & St Croix)
