Welcome to the holidays! Jackson Municipal Airport Authority wants to remind passengers, as well as guest picking up and dropping off at Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport (JAN), to prepare for increased holiday traffic this week until the first of the new year.
Holiday Travel Tips:
- Check flight status before heading to JAN. All passengers are encouraged to arrive at JAN two (2) hours prior to flight departure. Ticket counters open daily at 4:00 AM. JMAA provides quick access to flight information at www.iFlyJackson.com, and general information on holiday travel including links to the Transportation Security Administration, airline and rental car reservation sites and parking availability on our website www.jmaa.com.
During peak holiday travel our parking lots fill up quickly! The Long Term parking rate is $10.00 per calendar day, and a free shuttle will take you to and from the passenger terminal. The Garage and Surface Lot are also available at $16.00 and $14.00 per day respectively. Our FREE shuttle cart will be operating around the Surface parking lot now through January 2. Take advantage of our Free Cell Phone Parking Lot to wait for your family and friends to arrive.
- Pack Smart. Ship gifts ahead of travel. Pack your liquids, gels and aerosols in your checked luggage. If you need small amounts of liquids, gels and aerosols available to you while you travel follow the 3 –1–1 Rule … liquids in a 3-ounce bottle or less; 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger placed in screening bin. If you find you do not have a zip-top bag when you need one, JMAA has courtesy bags available to passengers at the screening checkpoints. Questions about security? Please visit www.TSA.gov.
- Be Prepared. Have your ID and boarding pass available.
Thank you for flying Jackson and Happy Holidays from the Jackson Municipal Airport Authority family to you and yours.
