DALLAS, Jan. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- JSX, the acclaimed air carrier that offers daily flights from private terminals for the cost of a commercial ticket, announced today that it will launch service between Portland International Airport (PDX) and Seattle's King County International Airport-Boeing Field (BFI) beginning on April 2, 2020. At launch, JSX will offer five daily round-trip flights on 30-seat jets from private terminals between Portland and Seattle. Ticket prices start at just $49 one-way and can be booked beginning today at www.jsx.com.
The ease and comfort of the JSX "hop on jet service" combined with the convenience of arriving at Boeing Field - just 15 minutes from downtown Seattle - means travelers can save up to two hours each time they fly between the two cities.
"In 2016, we set out to create an entirely new air travel experience designed to make flying between short distances simple, joyful and reliable," said Alex Wilcox, CEO of JSX. "In just four years, we have grown to more than 2,200 monthly flights, clear evidence that this type of unique air service is filling a void left by major carriers while meeting the previously unfulfilled needs of business and leisure travelers alike. People who were through with flying are falling back in love with it. We are thrilled to bring the JSX experience to Portland."
The addition of service to Portland increases JSX's route network to eight destinations including Orange County (SNA), Las Vegas (LAS), Concord/East Bay (CCR), Oakland (OAK), Phoenix (PHX), Seattle Boeing-Field (BFI) and Burbank (BUR), as well as seasonally to Mammoth Mountain (MMH).
With JSX, customers arrive just 20 minutes before departure at private terminals and check-in for their flight without long lines or hassle before boarding beautifully appointed 30-seat Embraer 135 or 145 planes. While inflight, JSX customers can stretch out in 36-inches of legroom and enjoy complimentary snacks and beverages - including cocktails. Each customer is allotted two or three free bags depending on the fare purchased.
JSX is seeking dedicated and enthusiastic Crewmembers to join the Portland team, including Supervisor and Airport Services Concierge roles, and will be conducting an open call recruitment for these positions on January 25, 2020. Interested applicants should arrive at Hilton Portland Downtown by 10 am PT with four copies of their resume. Those who cannot attend the open call recruitment may view and apply for positions at JSX.com/careers.
Tickets may be purchased on www.jsx.com with flights available for booking from April 2 through June 30, 2020.
