JetBlue’s footprint in Puerto Rico

Based in New York, JetBlue is the largest airline in Puerto Rico. The capital of San Juan is serviced by 11 nonstop JetBlue routes and several dozens of connecting cities.

"Connecting the dreams of our customers to financial solutions is an important part of Popular's culture, which is why we partnered with JetBlue to create these two new products that offer great benefits," said Solimar Cedeño, vice president of retail lending for Popular Bank, in a news release. "Although the pandemic has modified our behaviors, clients can plan for the future and eventually travel when they decide to do so."

JetBlue enthusiasts in Puerto Rico and the mainland alike can enjoy the ability to pool TrueBlue points with up to seven friends and family members, plus the opportunity to use points to fly JetBlue’s luxury Mint cabin.
