PRESS RELEASE - JAX ranks among best U.S. airports for customer satisfaction:

Jacksonville International Airport has earned a top spot among comparably sized airports for customer satisfaction in the J.D. Power 2019 North American Airport Satisfaction Survey.

“We are thrilled to be recognized for the excellent customer service we provide at JAX. Our airport is a gateway to the Northeast Florida region that our community can be proud of,” shared Mark VanLoh, Chief Executive Officer of the Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA). “As our team meets the challenges of record passenger growth and managing ongoing improvements to our parking facilities and terminal, our sights are still firmly set on our number one goal: ensuring that JAX provides an outstanding passenger experience to all travelers.”

JAX was ranked second place with a score of 831 points based on a 1,000 point scale. The average score for other medium-sized airports was 803.

Last year, JAX was the fastest-growing airport in the United States, and in July it generated the most revenue in one month in the airport’s history.

JAA invites customer feedback through a survey on its website, flyjax.com.

From the The Florida Times-Union July 29, 2019

"As one of the fastest-growing airports in North America for 2018, Jacksonville International Airport is already having another banner year.

This March, 664,479 passengers traveled through JAX, more than any other month in the airport’s half-century of operations.

In April, we announced that our airport system contributed a record $6 billion to our local economy.

In June, we marked 21 months of consecutive growth.

We also look forward to unveiling Concourse B, which will add six new gates to our terminal, by the end of 2022.

The most publicly tangible sign of our remarkable growth is the capacity closures which have affected every parking option available at JAX. Long-awaited renovations and repairs on our parking facilities, combined with welcoming a record volume of passengers, means during this off-peak season, we have had to open new economy lots, because even our most expensive parking options are frequently at capacity.

We are working hard to accommodate increased passenger volume and demands on our amenities, but we face inevitable growing pains.

Many Northeast Florida residents may not know that the Jacksonville Aviation Authority is a self-supporting agency. It does not receive any revenues from the city’s general fund. We rely largely on revenue from the Passenger Facility Charge to build and maintain infrastructure that increases capacity, improves safety and creates competition among carriers to benefit our customers.

The Passenger Facility Charge program was created by Congress in 1990 as a small user fee attached to airline tickets that goes directly to improving the airport you are traveling from to make your flying experience safer and more efficient.

In 2000, Congress increased the fee to $4.50, and it has remained unchanged in spite of its reduced buying power over the past two decades. If the fee kept up with inflation, that $4.50 would be worth $6.83 today.

While passenger traffic has increased more than 35 percent over that period, we have lost 51 percent of our buying power with the PFC."

Mark VanLoh is CEO of the Jacksonville Aviation Authority.

Jacksonville International Airport News:

The Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) has begun construction on a new air traffic control tower and spaceport operations center at Cecil Airport, with completion projected in early 2021.

“The construction of our new control tower and operations center marks an exciting new development as we prepare to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the transition from NAS Cecil Field to Cecil Airport later this year,” said JAA chief executive officer Mark VanLoh. “We look forward to providing an outstanding new facility to serve the industry leaders who operate at Cecil and advance our region’s reputation for world-class aviation and aerospace opportunities.”

With a total cost of $8.9 million, the new tower will be funded by JAA and matching Florida Department of Transportation and Space Florida funding. The contractor, Walbridge Southeast LLC, has begun digging for utilities at the future base of the tower.

The current tower’s view of the airport is partially obstructed by newer hangars, but in the new tower, air traffic controllers will have unimpeded views of all 6,000 acres, including the new Fire Station 63. The current tower will be removed once the new tower is operational.

In addition to the new air traffic control tower, the spaceport operation center and mission control will house telemetry and weather monitoring equipment to support Cecil Spaceport. Cecil Spaceport is the first FAA-licensed horizontal launch commercial spaceport on the East Coast and only the eighth to be licensed in the United States.

JAA plans a commissioning ceremony which will be open to the public near the completion of the project. More details will become available as the ceremony approaches.

Our Story

Airport art programs have become an aviation industry standard and play an important role in branding a city’s identity -- as well as visually telling its story to newcomers. The city of Jacksonville and the Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) recognized this need in 1995 when the not-for-profit entity “Jacksonville International Airport Arts Commission” was formed. The program’s intention is to provide a friendly and upbeat distraction, soothe and inspire, and educate visitors regarding the abundant artistic talent and cultural resources available within our seven-county aviation service region. The JIA Arts Commission and JAA are committed to showing the work of professional fine and emerging artists native to or residing within our community. Its gallery spaces are multipurpose to showcase working artists, historical displays, and also to share our city’s great cultural organizations.

Exhibition spaces include the fine art collection featured within the "Haskell Gallery", rotating fine art and culture displays along the public thoroughfares in Baggage Claim, the Connector Bridge, and in Concourse A and B, as well as the annually rotating cultural organization supportive "Sky Gallery". Adjacent to the main courtyard pre-security, we also now feature a brand new aviation museum spanning from the birth of Aviation in 1878 to the present. Known as the Aviation Gallery, it opened in its entirety to the public at JIA in 2018. The Jacksonville International Airport Arts Commission, JAA, and the many creatives partnering with them each year for the past 24 years work together to make a highly visible and positive first impression of Jacksonville to the 6.5+ million visitors landing on the First Coast each year.

Can you please post some information on the amazing artwork in the baggage claim area of the airport? What is the history of the work? No one seems to notice it is made from old stamps. I know it has been there for years. DO tell us what you know. Thank you.
