JetBlue Travel Products Launches New “Troop” Travel App

DANIA BEACH, Florida–(BUSINESS WIRE)–JetBlue Travel Products, a subsidiary of JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU), today announced the creation of Troop, a free, collaborative group trip planning app. Whether planning a family reunion, a bachelorette party, or just getting together to reconnect with friends, Troupe takes the stress out of coordinating a group getaway.

“Anyone who has planned a vacation with a group of friends or family knows that getting everyone to agree on the details can make travel planning less fun,” said Andres Barry, president of JetBlue Travel Products. “As we continue to seek new solutions to alleviate friction in travel and extend JetBlue’s reputation for excellent service, the Troupe app aims to simplify group travel planning and aligns perfectly with our goal of create new travel offers that transform the way people travel.”

A collection of companies, JetBlue Travel Products continues to invest in new ideas and products in the service of bringing humanity to all aspects of travel. Following the successful relaunch of JetBlue Vacations in 2020 and the launch of Paisly in 2021, Troupe is the next step in creating unique and differentiated travel experiences for customers.

Aligned with JetBlue’s efforts to make travel seamless for its customers, Troupe is a hands-on app dedicated to taking as much work off the plates of planners as possible. With Troupe, travelers can suggest, vote on, and comment on dates, destinations, activities, and stays, so everyone has a say in the trip planning process. The easy-to-use app allows travelers to keep track of everything in one place. Users can manage RSVPs, create polls, share notes, add suggestions, and vote as a group to build consensus and lock in a plan before booking.

Troupe brings groups together to decide on all the important details, so one person doesn’t have to do it alone, giving travelers a stress-free experience from start to finish:

  • Make suggestions: Explore different destinations, stays and activities, then add them to your group’s shared trip and keep track of everything in one easy-to-use app.
  • Vote and comment: Vote on the suggestions that work best for the group, build consensus, then finalize the details before booking.
  • Collaborate and plan: Share links, videos and notes with your group so you can visit everything you want to see once you arrive at your destination.
  • A shared space: Whether you’re gearing up for a trip with friends to Miami or heading out of the office with co-workers, Troupe brings your group together to decide on all the important details, so you don’t have to do it alone.
  • Fewer round trips: Centralize your decision-making as a group, so everyone has a say without long discussion threads. Then set deadlines, push updates, and lock in a plan before you go. Getting everyone to agree has never been easier.

“It’s undeniable that planning a vacation for a large group can be overwhelming, especially when everyone’s requirements are different,” said Alexandra Zubko, CEO of Troupe. “Troupe was designed to make group travel planning fun, not stressful, and working with JetBlue Travel Products to bring this product to life was a no brainer. We are proud to be the newest product to come out of JetBlue Travel. Products and we are thrilled to have the support of such a strong travel company whose mission aligns with ours: solving the biggest problems travelers face.
