Officials at Jacksonville International Airport are bracing for what’s expected to be a busy Thanksgiving holiday travel period.
The Jacksonville Aviation Authority in a prepared statement Monday said they’ll be opening an extra lot to handle parking for those parting ways from JIA. Economy Lot 3 will be available from Wednesday through Dec. 2 for overflow parking. Entry into the lot is a flat rate of $20 and there will be a free shuttle service. The lot, usually used for special events, will be open to travelers on a first come, first serve basis.
Due to the heavy amount of travelers expected, JAA officials are warning airport users to show up at least two hours before departure time.
Those using Economy Lot 3 are advised, though, to return by or on Dec. 2 because after that remaining vehicles will be towed.
