JSX Announces Changes Due to Coronavirus

During this tough time in the aviation industry, airlines all over the world are canceling routes and grounding aircraft and Dallas based JSX, formally JetSuiteX, is no different.

Over the past couple of weeks, the carrier has slowly been discontinuing cities in its route map including Seattle’s Boeing Field and over half of its current and planned routes. Another such example is its seasonal service to Mammoth Lakes, Calif. which it has ended earlier than planned.

The Dallas-based carrier was planned to begin four new destinations this spring on which the start dates have all been postponed without a planned start date. The four cities include Portland, Ore.; Monterey and Coachella Valley, Calif.; and Reno-Tahoe, Nev.

An email was sent out to passengers and investors by the airline announcing planned social distancing measures aboard its still operating flights to six remaining cities.

Its Embraer E-135 and E-145 jets are configured for 30 passengers in a 1-2 layout, but due to the new social distancing measures, they will be limiting all of the public flights to just 20 guests.

Social distancing flights were explained further in the public email. JSX stated that this will “ensure you’ll have an empty seat or an aisle, not a person, next to you.”

By giving passenger that extra space between them and others it will lessen the risk of getting others sick and the spreading of the virus.
