[Jacksonville, FL – 05 April 2021 – In a sign of rising passenger traffic, the Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) today reopened Economy Lot #1 at Jacksonville International Airport (JAX), one year after it was closed due to the downturn in air travel.
Economy Lot #1 re-opened on the same day that an estimated 7,500 passengers will fly out of Jacksonville – the highest single day for travel out of JAX in more than a year.
“As people feel safe being in airport terminals and flying in airplanes again, we want to be ready for the increase in traffic,” JAA CEO Mark VanLoh said. “Given the updated guidance from the CDC on vaccinated people traveling, that could happen very soon.”
On Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued updated guidance on travel for fully vaccinated people.
A few operational changes are now in place that travelers should be aware of prior to parking in Economy Lot #1:
Economy lot rate remains the same – only $6/day.
