As we enter the holiday weekend and into next week, JMAA is committed to providing a seamless and efficient travel experience for all passengers.

We are pleased to report that JAN operations are currently running smoothly, with minimal impact on the four (4) global carriers serving Jackson.
Passengers flying out of JAN are encouraged to check the flight status with their respective airlines before heading to the airport.
