With the Coronavirus outbreak spreading, MINT is taking every precaution to ensure the health of our team members, customers, partners, and community we serve and live in. As always, safety is our first priority.
Our pandemic plan has calls for a phased approach consistent with guidelines recommended by the German Federal Ministry of Health and U.S. Centers for Disease Control which include assessing an incident and then containing and mitigating risk. The plan identifies specific actions that are triggered based upon the assessed severity. We have assembled a response team that is monitoring the situation on an ongoing basis and implementing actions in accordance with our plan.
All MINT services are operational. As a precautionary measure, to take steps toward that safety, we have encouraged all MINT team members to work remotely and be diligent about their hygiene to help prevent illness. We have also suspended all nonessential travel.
This does not, however, mean that our customers will be without support. The MINT team will continue to perform all day-to-day duties remotely, and MINT will continue to support our customers as best we can through this trying time in the aviation industry.

Breeze Airways becomes MINT’s newest (and most recently founded) customer. Brand new, Breeze was only founded by David Neeleman (founder of JetBlue and Azul, which are also MINT customers) back in June 2018. Commencing operations in 2020, they hope to launch their first flight by the end of this year.
Breeze Airways plans to fly between markets that they consider to be underserved. These include: flying into & out of secondary airports in underserved regions and mid-size cities with no current nonstop flights. Their goal is to be, as Neeleman puts it, “the world’s nicest airline.”
Unlike some of our other customers, Breeze will start out with MINT as its first training management tool. The airline will use MINT for record-keeping, scheduling, reporting & analysis, and much more.
We’re excited to welcome Breeze to the MINT family with open arms and to help their company take-off!
Lufthansa Airlines, the largest airline in Germany, signs on to use MINT for training and resource management.
