American Airlines said Wednesday it plans to lay off about 13,000 employees, but Jacksonville Aviation Authority officials said it’s too early to tell what that means for the Jacksonville International Airport.

Michael Stewart, director of external affairs for the Jacksonville Aviation Authority, said there's no word from the company on changes to employees or flights at JIA.

The airline operated 71 flights a week in December 2011, with 22,377 American Airlines passengers taking off or landing in Jacksonville. It's the fourth largest airline carrier at JIA in terms of the number of seats, Stewart said.
