How to Find Cheap Air Travel to/from Jacksonville
Jacksonville International Airport (airport code JAX) is a mere nine miles north of Jacksonville, Florida, and was opened in 1968. It is not a hub for any airline, but has been expanding steadily in recent years and serves both northeastern Florida and southeastern Georgia. The economic downturn of 2009 resulted in a significant decrease in passenger traffic. In mid-June 2009 Concourse B was demolished and the remains of the structure will eventually be part of the lounge. A new concourse will be built when traffic increases (by 2013). The parking facilities were upgraded, but the area will see further expansion. A new baggage screening system will be added, as well. So, post-construction, the Jacksonville airport will be an efficient and modern facility. During the process, however, whole sections of the airport are likely to be closed and getting around could be a challenge. Remember to bring your patience with you.
