JetBlue is adding new routes that’ll feature its famous EatUp Café. For the first time ever, the airline is offering fresh food from its EatUp Café menu on select Latin American and Caribbean routes.

Prior to Tuesday’s announcement, JetBlue’s EatUp Café menu items were only offered on domestic long-haul flights, but now the items will be available for purchase on international flights longer than four hours departing from New York (JFK) and Boston (BOS). Additionally, JetBlue introduced three new EatUp snack boxes, including a protein-packed one, a Mediterranean-inspired one and a party snack mix.

The EatUp Café menu now features the following items in addition to the snack boxes: chia seed pudding, Mediterranean salad shaker, turkey & pepper jack sandwich, ham and cheese croissant and cheese and crackers.

The Latin America and Caribbean regions account for one-third of JetBlue’s destinations, and by expanding the airline’s snack boxes and menu items, food will now be available on more than 70 domestic and international routes combined.
