After curtailing flights to Austin, Texas, earlier this year, JSX is moving its remaining operations.

Flights will move from Bergstrom International Airport to Austin Executive Airport.

The change is effective Dec. 14, 2023, and impacts its four times weekly seasonal flights to Taos, New Mexico.

That schedule runs through the end of March 2024.

At the end of September, JSX cut flights from the Lone Star state capital to Dallas, Las Vegas, and Gunnison/Crested But.

A JSX spokesperson told local media at the time, “We are actively working to resolve real estate constraints that are inhibiting our ability to serve the market sustainably and enable our growth and cater to our customer demand.”

The spokesperson said, “JSX remains committed to serving the Austin community and looks forward to resuming flights once a more sufficient place from which to operate is secured.”

In recent months, JSX has moved operations in Miami and San Diego from the main airports to nearby airports that are exclusively used by private aviation.

While JSX operates on a schedule and customers buy individual seats, it uses private terminals.

That enables customers to check in as little as 20 minutes before departure.

JSX has been actively campaigning to prevent possible rule changes that could impact its business model.

Its CEO, Alex Wilcox, has specifically called out American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, and their unions as being behind the possible changes.

Seven different aviation groups have joined JSX to lobby against new restrictions.
