Busiest Month in JAX History
Posted by: Editor in Air Service, April 23, 2019
March 2019 was the busiest month, not just the busiest March, in the history of Jacksonville International Airport. A total of 664,479 passengers, including 329,674 enplanements and 334,805 deplanements, passed through the airport in March.
March’s record numbers represent a continuation of 18 consecutive months of year-over-year growth at JAX, dating from October of 2017. Moreover, every month since August 2018 has set all-time passenger records for that month in JAX’s history – August 2018 was the busiest August ever, September 2018 the busiest September ever, etc.
“I couldn’t be prouder of the whole JAX team,” said Mark VanLoh, CEO of the Jacksonville Aviation Authority. “These numbers aren’t just a flash in the pan. They demonstrate sustained, steady growth, and speak to not only the competence of our team but also the attractiveness of Jacksonville as a destination for both business and pleasure.”
March 2019 saw 99 more flights and 18,002 more available seats per week than March 2018. Airport executives expect JAX’s strong growth to continue through the rest of 2019.
