Nearly 50,000 passengers will depart from Jacksonville International Airport Thanksgiving weekend— but the majority of the passengers won't actually be flying on Thursday.

While some think that Thanksgiving day will be the busiest day of flights, Sunday is actually Jacksonville's busiest, said Michael Stewart, spokesman for the Jacksonville Aviation Authority.

Thanksgiving weekend is a big travel weekend for Jacksonville.

About 9,888 passengers will fly out of Jacksonville on Sunday, according to numbers provided to the Business Journal by the aviation authority, versus 4,427 customers on Thursday.
