Airlines serving the Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport (JAN) report flight reservations at traditional highs during the four-day Thanksgiving Weekend Holiday. We expect to up to 3,000 passengers per day, with the peak travel occurring on Wednesday, November 23rd, and then again on Saturday and Sunday, November 26th and 27th. The peak hours for departing passenger reservations are between 5:00 A.M. and 1:00 P.M. daily.

During peak holiday travel our parking lots fill up quickly! 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 beginning November 23rd. Take advantage of our Free Cell Phone Parking Lot to wait for your family and friends to arrive.

Arrive early, at least two hours before your flight so you have plenty of time to check-in with your airline, and process through the security checkpoints. Be prepared: have your ID and boarding pass available, 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
