“We are very excited to welcome Air Canada to JAX,” Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) CEO Steve Grossman said. “This service gives Canadians an opportunity to enjoy Northeast Florida’s many amenities while offering our community a nonstop connection to Canada.”
Air Canada does not currently serve Northeast Florida, making them the newest entrant into the market. Grossman is hopeful that with community support of the flight, more daily operations are possible in the future.
