Economy Lot 2 Closing for Upgrades-Project will enhance JAX parking facilities

January 30, 2017

Economy Lot 2 (E-2) is now closed in preparation for installation of a new parking system. The closure is expected to last several months.

Once all vehicles exit the lot, crews will clean up storm and other debris before the project begins in March.

Signage placed along Pecan Park Road will direct customers to park in Economy Lot 1 (E-1), which has ample parking spaces available. Free shuttle service between E-1 and the terminal will continue to operate as normal.

E-2 is the first of JAX’s five public parking facilities to receive the system overhaul. Improvements include replacement of all gates and equipment, ability to integrate with SunPass and easy payment using either a pay-on-foot station in the terminal or upon exit. In addition, a new License Plate Recognition (LPR) System will confirm actual parking time in the event of a lost ticket.

Anyone with questions or concerns may call the parking office at 904.741.2277.

Navigating through Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) has never been easier with the official release of the “JAX Airport” app, now available for both Android and iOS devices.  

The new app has a multitude of features to assist travelers through every aspect of their airport experience. These include flight information, a comprehensive list of shops and restaurants at JAX and an interactive map of the ticketing, baggage claim and gate areas. 

Over the last several years, there has been an upward trend in the number of users accessing the JAX website, www.flyjax.com, from mobile devices. The app was developed to meet the needs of passengers desiring information on-the-go. 

“We strive to enhance the airport experience for our passengers,” Jacksonville Aviation Authority CEO Steve Grossman said. “With so many people using mobile devices, an airport-specific app seemed to fill a need.”  

This free app gives passengers unprecedented access to the airport’s many in-terminal amenities, the latest airport news as well as job listings.
