Jet Blue adds wifi to Caribbean flights as upgraded planes roll out

Caribbean travelers on Jet Blue will soon be able to enjoy the airline’s recent upgrades which include free wifi connectivity.

Jet Blue announced that its newest cabin experience on the Airbus A320 aircraft has entered into service, bringing to the skies the widest seats available for this aircraft, custom-designed seatback inflight entertainment (IFE) with 100 plus channels of DIRECTV and hundreds of free movies and shows, ability to pair your mobile device to the screen, easy-to-reach power sources at every seat, and expanded coverage of free Wi-Fi connectivity almost everywhere JetBlue flies.

A major focus of the restyling is keeping customers connected throughout their flight, including a new inflight entertainment system, high-definition seatback televisions, in-seat power outlets with USB ports and continued free gate-to-gate Fly-Fi high-speed internet with an expanded coverage area – including throughout the Caribbean and Latin America where Fly-Fi had not been available until now.

The aircraft, named “If You Can Read This, You're Blue Close,” re-joins JetBlue’s fleet this week with roughly a third of JetBlue’s A320 aircraft scheduled for restyling completion by the end of the year.

“JetBlue rocked the airline industry in 2000 with seatback television and all leather seats. In our first makeover since this incredible new onboard experience represents what the founders would have done if they were launching JetBlue today,” said Marty St. George, executive vice president, and chief commercial officer, JetBlue.

“The new experience brings together technology, entertainment, and comfort with the great service JetBlue customers love so much.”

For most of the airlines 100+ destinations, the A320 restyling will bring the upgraded JetBlue experience to their city for the first time.
