The Jacksonville Aviation Authority is beginning “an aggressive planning process” in preparation for the surge in passenger traffic it expects from the Republican National Convention.
In a statement, it said it is working with airlines, the Transportation Security Administration, terminal concessionaires, rental car companies and law enforcement to ensure “a safe and enjoyable time” in airport facilities.
It said it will work with Mayor Lenny Curry’s office, the 2020 RNC Host Committee, JAX Chamber and Visit Jacksonville.
“Authority staff understand that the first and last impression many will have of the region will be at JAA-managed airports and will endeavor to make it an excellent experience,” the statement read.
JAA expects passengers to come through Jacksonville International Airport, JAXEX at Craig Airport, Herlong Recreational Airport and Cecil Airport.
JAA created the “JAX Airport Cares” program designed to keep passengers healthy. Information is at jaxairportcares.com.
