The Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) is launching “JAX Airport Cares,” a program designed to protect the health and safety of passengers when traveling through Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) and minimize the spread of COVID-19, prior to the summer travel season.
“Aviation is one of the industries hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic,” JAA CEO Mark VanLoh said. “Before people will travel again, they need to have confidence that airports, airlines and TSA are doing everything we can to protect them.”
While many procedures were in effect at the start of the COVID-19 crisis, these enhanced protective measures are currently in place for the well-being of travelers:
“In the interest of TSA frontline workers and traveler health, TSA is committed to making prudent changes to our screening processes to limit physical contact and increase physical distance as much as possible,” said TSA Administrator David Pekoske. “We continue to evaluate our security measures with an eye towards making smart, timely decisions benefiting health and safety, as well as the traveler experience.”
Anyone flying through Jacksonville in the near future is encouraged to visit the JAX website at www.jaxairportcares.com to learn what the airport, TSA, and airlines are doing to reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure while traveling.
