Congratulations to the Jacksonville Aviation Authority for winning a nice award from a top airline industry trade group.
The independent authority has earned an Inclusion Championship Award from the Airports Council International-North America for its work to promote local small businesses and workforce diversity.
The JAA has held workshops, forums and other events to make business opportunities available for small businesses — and particularly for minority entrepreneurs.
The JAA also won the inclusion award for embracing diversity within the authority.
The JAA oversees our city’s airport system, including Jacksonville International Airport.
