By-the-seat private jet operator JSX is expanding its Texas presence with flights between Dallas and Austin while increasing the schedule on its Houston route
After building its by-the-seat network on the West Coast, JSX is apparently focused on its home state of Texas. On Sept. 27 it will start twice-daily flights between Dallas Love Field and Austin Bergstrom International Airport.
On the same date, JSX increase flights between Love Field and Houston Hobby Airport. Ther will now be up to four flights per day in each direction.
On both routes, fares start at $129.
“Demand for air travel continues to increase in our home state of Texas. In addition to our increased flying between Dallas and Houston, our new Austin route will give Texans what they’ve long been asking for: simple, accessible alternatives to packed commercial flights,” says JSX CEO Alex Wilcox.
He adds, “Our distinctive form of flying eliminates the hassles and headaches associated with congested airports, irksome middle seats, uncaring customer service, and long, unpredictable lines. I am confident that our new flights will offer every customer – no matter why they are traveling – a simple, joyful way to move freely around the great state of Texas.”
JSX uses reconfigured regional jets providing extra legroom. Flights operate from private terminals, enabling flyers to bypass congested airport terminals and show up 20 minutes before departure. Complimentary amenities for all customers include two checked bags, ncluding golf bags, skis, and snowboards, drinks, snacks, and cocktails inflight
Flights prices are comparable to coach or first class fares on the airlines.
“We’re excited to welcome JSX to Austin, and know that the convenience and comfort offered by this unique new service will be a perfect fit for many of our Central Texas travelers,” adds Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) Chief Executive Officer, Jacqueline Yaft.
New JSX routes
JSX also operates seasonal flights from Houston and Dallas to Lajitas and Destin, Florida. It links its West Coast network with flights between Dallas and Las Vegas.
The company moved its headquarters from California to Dallas in 2018. However, it continues to build its network in the West with flights from Orange County and Burbank to Monterey. It also started flights from Oakland and Las Vegas to Reno.
