Jacksonville, FL — Over a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re seeing signs of normalcy returning to the Jacksonville International Airport (JAX).
On Monday, the Jacksonville Aviation Authority says it reopened Economy Lot #1 at JAX to prepare for a rise in passengers, as people are beginning to travel again.
“As people feel safe being in airport terminals and flying in airplanes again, we want to be ready for the increase in traffic. Given the updated guidance from the CDC on vaccinated people traveling, that could happen very soon,” says JAA CEO Mark VanLoh in a statement.
If you plan to park in Economy Lot #1, the Jacksonville Aviation Authority says you should be aware of the following:
• The lot is credit card only, no cash.
• Masks are required on shuttle buses to and from the terminal.
• Shuttle buses are sanitized frequently.
• Economy lot rate remains the same – only $6/day.
The Jacksonville Aviation Authority says an estimated 7,500 passengers were to set to fly out of JAX on Monday, marking the highest single day for travel for the airport in more than a year.
