Our partnership with Utrip demonstrates that we can transform the vacation experience using both technology and a human touch.**

Integrating Utrip into the JetBlue Vacations online experience makes it effortless for travelers to discover destinations in the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean based on what matters most to them.

Utrip*s vast database of more than 150 destinations has been curated by local area experts.

Next they rank their travel preferences in sixteen categories, such as history, food, nightlife and budget. Utrip*s artificial intelligence algorithm, created by machine learning scientists, sorts through millions of potential combinations of sites, activities and restaurants – offering a suggested daily itinerary with recommended times and maps.
