[Jacksonville, FL – 24 January 2024] The Jacksonville Aviation Authority (JAA) today released the passenger totals for Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) in 2023. The airport surpassed its annual pre-COVID passenger record for the first time, and posted a record number of passengers last year.


In 2023, 7,446,084 passengers departed from or arrived at Jacksonville International Airport, a 13 percent increase over the previous year and surpassing 2019’s previous record of 7,186,639 enplanements.


“Northeast Florida is incredibly desirable as a place to visit and live, and our record airport traffic is a testament to that,” said Mark VanLoh, CEO of the Jacksonville Aviation Authority. “Our team is focused on bringing the best experience to passengers, including faster security screening, more dining choices, and additional nonstop routes to the most popular destinations.”


“As one of the best mid-sized airports in the country, Jacksonville International Airport is an asset our community takes great pride in,” said JAA board chair Michelle Barnett. “Anyone traveling through JAX can witness the investment we are making in the airport, through the improvements to the security area and the upcoming Concourse B addition. Our airport is one of the key reasons why Jacksonville is a great place to visit or do business.”
