JetBlue Airways is giving Boston business travelers their own version of the popular All You Can Jet pass.

From Aug. 22 to Nov. 22, passengers can take an unlimited number of flights to 55 destinations out of Logan International Airport for a flat rate of $1,999. For $1,499, Boston pass holders can fly to 13 nonstop destinations, mainly on the East Coast. This BluePass, aimed at business customers, is more flexible than the All You Can Jet pass, allowing travelers to book and change flights up to 90 minutes before departure without a penalty.

Pass holders can also miss two scheduled flights in a week without being penalized. Access to seats with more legroom and priority boarding are not included.

The BluePass goes on sale today at www.jetblue.com/bluepass and will be available until Aug. 31, or while supplies last. The one-month All You Can Jet pass sold out within a few days both times the airline offered it.

Between 15 and 20 percent of JetBlue’s passengers are business travelers, and in Boston, that figure is significantly higher, said Dennis Corrigan, vice president of sales and revenue management for the airline.

“As we’ve been really building out the Boston network, and we’ve primarily focused on business destinations, it was just a no-brainer,” he said.

JetBlue is also offering the BluePass to customers in Long Beach, where it is also the largest carrier.
