PARKING LOTS CONGESTED – SECURITY LINES LONG – BUSINESS IS GOOD!
The Jackson Municipal Airport Authority (JMAA) is expecting high numbers of travelers to use the Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport (JAN) during this year’s Thanksgiving holiday season. With high traffic volumes averaging an estimated 2,500 to 4,000 passengers per day beginning today, parking facilities will fill quickly and the security checkpoint lines will likely be long. The key to trouble free travel is extra time! Come early and be patient. Heavy travel volumes and the enhanced security process may mean longer lines at security checkpoints. Our airline partners report that we currently have reservations for over 31,000 passengers traveling through the Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport between November 22nd and December 1st of this year.
