Baggage screening system gets upgrade at JAX
June 20, 2016

The Jacksonville Aviation Authority continued upgrades to its Hold Baggage Screening System, Monday morning.

New screening machines were installed on the south side ticketing area of Jacksonville International Airport. The machines are part of a series of modifications that began in August 2015, on the north side ticketing area. That portion of the project was completed June 7.

The next phase of the project could mean temporary changes for passengers. Those traveling with American, Southwest, Allegiant, and Air Canada will need to take their checked bags a short distance away to a temporary "Bag Drop" area for screening after checking in at the ticket counter.

Curbside check-in will still be available for travelers during this next phase of the project.
