Jacksonville International Airport is gearing up for increased travel

With a growing population in Jacksonville and increasing airline demand for more flights, the timing is now right for expansion at the Jacksonville International Airport with a new $ 300 million concourse.

Flight travel is making a return to pre-pandemic levels, and with funding from the federal government, Jacksonville’s airport is among a growing number of airports upgrading facilities. Many of them are decades old and not designed to accommodate security that was put in place following the Sept. 11 attacks. As part of expansion plans in Jacksonville, TSA will be adding new screening technology that allows them to screen passengers at a much faster rate.

Plans to add a third concourse in Jacksonville enable the airport to attract more flights and destinations that were put on hold when the pandemic started. And while the airport would like to attract more West coast flights, a great sign for growth is Breeze Airways March announcement to offer flights to seven of Jacksonville’s largest unserved markets.
