JSX Moves Out of Larger Airports
Dallas-based air carrier JSX has started moving out of some of the larger airports it serves, specifically in two specific cities.
In Miami, the carrier currently operates from Miami International to Dallas Love Field and Westchester, N.Y., along with new winter seasonal flights that operate to Marsh Harbour in the Bahamas. But, starting on Sept. 26, 2023, the carrier will be moving all of its Miami area flights eight miles north to nearby Opa-Locka Airport.
Shifting on the West Coast
This was only the start, as this week the carrier just announced its second move out of a large international airport: San Diego, which has service to Las Vegas and Taos, N.M., the latter of the two is served in conjunction with Taos Air.
Starting Oct. 5, 2023, JSX will be moving nearly 30 miles north to Carlsbad, Calif., which the carrier calls “San Diego/Carlsbad” despite being nearly a 40-minute drive from Downtown San Diego during non-rush hour traffic, and will usually be over an hour in California rush hour traffic.
Moving from larger international airports to smaller more convenient secondary airports does fit the JSX brand. But, unlike Opa-Locka and Miami, which are around 20-minutes apart by car on a single road and isn’t much of a change for travelers, moving airports in Southern California makes less sense, as it’s away from the major population center and takes much longer for those that do have a final destination in or around downtown San Diego.
This will give Carlsbad Airport its first regular service to Las Vegas since California Pacific Airlines collapsed in the winter of 2019 after many years of trying to solidify air service. JSX will be the second carrier at Carlsbad after Advanced Air, which serves Mammoth Lakes on a seasonal basis with King Air 350s and Dornier 328 jets.
As far as Opa-Locka, this could possibly be the first time the airport has received regular air carrier service.
