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.

    Joe has always been interested in planes, for as long as he can remember. He grew up in Central New York during the early 2000s when US Airways Express turboprops ruled the skies. Being from a non-aviation family made it harder for him to be around planes and would only spend about three hours a month at the airport. He was so excited when he could drive by himself and the first thing he did with the license was get ice cream and go plane spotting for the entire day. When he has the time (and money) he likes to take spotting trips to any location worth a visit. He’s currently enrolled at Western Michigan University earning a degree in Aviation Management and Operations.
