Jacksonville International Airport Prepares to Increase Flights

With the growing population of Jacksonville and increased demand from airlines for more flights, it is time to expand Jacksonville International Airport with a new $300 million concourse.

Air travel is returning to pre-pandemic levels, and with federal funding, Jacksonville Airport is among the airports with more facilities being upgraded. Many of them are decades old and not designed to provide the kind of security that was introduced after the 9/11 attacks. As part of expansion plans in Jacksonville, TSA will add new screening technology that will allow them to screen passengers much faster.

Plans to create a third concourse in Jacksonville allow the airport to receive more flights and destinations that have been suspended since the start of the pandemic. And while the airport would like to attract more flights to the west coast, Breeze Airways’ March announcement of flights to seven of Jacksonville’s largest unserved markets was a great sign of growth.
