JetBlue’s been aggressively expanding its fantastic Mint product to new destinations both within the continental US and some Caribbean islands, prompting other airlines to follow suit. Currently, the carrier is offering some pretty incredible fares on some of its Mint-equipped Caribbean routes and even a new transcon flight.

JetBlue’s Mint product will soon be available on many more flights.

We’re seeing one-way fares between New York (JFK) and St. Lucia (UVF) from just $263 in Mint. Keep in mind that Mint is not available on every flight between NYC and the island, and these fantastic fares seem to be available almost exclusively on Saturdays in January. However, if you have some flexibility in your travel dates, this could be a fantastic opportunity to try out one of the best products in the sky.

Another solid option are the $282 one-way fares between JFK and Aruba (AUA). Just like the St. Lucia fares, availability is limited to mostly Saturdays in January and early February — after that fares jump significantly.

If you want to stay stateside, you’ll find one-way fares between Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and Los Angeles (LAX) starting from just $449 in March through the end of the schedule. Availability is solid for most days of the week, although fares on Sundays, Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays are a bit higher.

If you’re interested in taking advantage of some of these deals, we’d recommend searching on Google Flights for exact dates of travel, as it’s usually much easier than searching on JetBlue’s site. Once you find a date that you’d like to fly, click through to JetBlue’s site to finish booking. Note that in some cases, the fare may appear on Google Flights but you’ll find that it’s not actually available to book through the airline.
