JACKSONVILLE, August 23, 2010 – Jacksonville Aviation Authority today announced that it will begin offering a faster designated security lane at Jacksonville International Airport in October.
Travelers who have elite flight designations with airlines will be able to use a special lane to get through security screening.
In addition, business travelers who have premium prepaid monthly parking at the airport will also be able to take advantage of the faster security lines.
“We think this new customer service program will be a welcome addition at JAX,” said Michael Stewart, JAA Director of External Affair. “The new security express lane will be especially good news to our frequent business travelers.” JAA will announce the start date soon.
JAA is also planning to re-institute the registered traveler program once a contractor can be identified. The program will allow travelers without a preferred or elite airline designation to pay an annual fee to access the preferred security lane. When the service would be expanded to these users is unknown, and Stewart estimated it would cost $75 to $150 annually.
