Posted by: Editor in Air Service, December 10, 2020
Southwest Airlines will offer daily nonstop flights from Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) to St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) beginning March 11, 2021.

“Service between Jacksonville and St. Louis will connect two cities with strong business ties,” Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) CEO Mark VanLoh said. “While nonstop flights to our nation’s capital are good for both business and leisure travelers.”
VanLoh said airport staff often meet with airlines to discuss potential new route opportunities and that St. Louis was frequently discussed with Southwest.
“We pitched St. Louis for a long time,” he said. “It is a great Midwest hub for Southwest with incredible connecting opportunities.”
Daily flights to JAX will depart Washington D.C. at 1:55 p.m. EST and arrive at 4:00 p.m. EST. Flights will depart JAX at 3:00 p.m. EST and arrive in Washington D.C. at 4:55 p.m. EST. Flight schedules to St. Louis and Washington D.C. will vary on Saturdays.
