The Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport will now be offering frequent, direct flights to Orlando, thanks to a partnership with Via Air.
“We are ecstatic Via Airlines chose Jackson, Mississippi,” Jackson Municipal Airport Authority chairman James L. Henley said. “We’re even more excited about the launch of new nonstop flights to Central Florida’s exciting attractions–just in time for summer travel.”
The Jackson Municipal Airport Authority held the official Inaugural Via Air ribbon cutting ceremony early Monday morning.
“Jackson has so much to offer both business and leisure travelers, and we’re excited to bring our nonstop jet service to Mississippi as part of our 2018 expansion,” Via Airlines vice president of operations Matthew Macri said.
Flights to “The Theme Park Capital of the World” will be offered every Sunday, Monday, Thursday, and Friday with tickets being reasonably priced at $99. All departure times will be in the morning, and each Via Air flight carries 50 passengers.
