The Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) officially opened a new military lounge for active-duty service men and women at Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) today prior to the start of popular travel holidays such as Christmas and New Year’s.

The Jacksonville International Airport Military Lounge is located on the baggage claim level at the site of the former USO. The Authority refurbished and updated the space while the North Jacksonville Rotary Club, United Way of Northeast Florida’s Mission United, and the Veterans Council of Duval County helped to coordinate volunteers to staff the lounge.

“With Northeast Florida’s deep ties to the military community, having a designated lounge area for service men and women was incredibly important to us,” JAA CEO Mark VanLoh said. “So many service members travel through our airport. We wanted them to have a space in our terminal where they could feel at home.”
