Your Next Trip on an Airplane: Lumumba Cleans House on State’s Largest Airport’s Board

JACKSON, Miss.–If you fly frequently, or infrequently for that matter, there could be changes on the way at the state’s largest airport. A move by the capital city’s mayor, Chokwe Lumumba, means the people who oversee that airport are now a completely different set.

At Tuesday’s city council meeting, Lumumba essentially fired the entire airport board and replaced them with totally new faces.

The city council confirmed Lumumba’s appoiintments.

WAPT-TV first reported the house cleaning. News Mississippi’s sources could not give a reason for the move.

The Jackson-Evers International Airport’s website says it is managed by the Jackson Municipal Airport Authroity and overseen by the five-member Board of Commissioners. That is the board that was replaced.

The website did not reflect the changes as of Wednesday morning.
