Air Canada Announces Nonstop Service to Toronto from Jacksonville International Airport 11/20/2015

November 19, 2015 – Air Canada will fly nonstop between Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) and Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) beginning May 21, 2016. 

Air Canada made the announcement this morning. The year-round service is currently scheduled for the weekends on a two-cabin Embraer ERJ-175. 

“Air Canada is pleased to offer service to Jacksonville from Toronto. Canadians visit the U.S. more than any other country and Air Canada’s extensive transborder network makes it the foreign carrier with the most flights to the U.S. Air Canada also offers convenient onward connections through our expansive global network to destinations around the world on North America’s only Four-Star, international network carrier,” said Lisa Pierce, Senior Director, U.S. Sales and Market Development at Air Canada.

“We are very excited to welcome Air Canada to JAX,” Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) CEO Steve Grossman said. “This service gives Canadians an opportunity to enjoy Northeast Florida’s many amenities while offering our community a nonstop connection to Canada.”

Air Canada does not currently serve Northeast Florida, making them the newest entrant into the market. Grossman is hopeful that with community support of the flight, more daily operations are possible in the future.

Jacksonville International Airport Passenger Traffic Up in July 11/6/2015

August 22, 2011 - The Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) announced that the number of passengers traveling through Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) advanced nearly 4 percent in July.

The current year-to-date number of passengers through the end of July was 3.3 million, a slight 0.2 percent decrease over the same 12-month period a year earlier.

The total number of daily departures at JAX in July was 105. That’s a 7 percent increase over the 98 daily departures in July 2010.

“During these tumultuous economic times, it’s encouraging to report an uptick in monthly passenger traffic,” said Michael Stewart, Director of External Affairs for the JAA. “We are particularly pleased that JetBlue’s new daily service to San Juan, which began in May, has been exceeding expectations. And while it’s only been a couple of months since Southwest began non-stop service to Denver, indications are it’s off to a good start.”

As passenger traffic picks up, customers can enjoy amenities at the airport such as free wi-fi, a preferred traveler lane through security, premier and frequent parker programs. Improvements to the terminal continue as all the carpeting is being removed and new terrazzo flooring installed.
