Independent carrier JSX has announced new international flights to the Mexican resort of Cabo San Lucas that will launch in December.
The Dallas-based aviation company, which launched in 2016, claims to be ‘the world’s only 5-star hop-on jet service,’ offering commercial tickets on small, 30-seat jets, giving passengers the experience of flying on a ‘private jet’ without having to fork out thousands of dollars for a charter flight.
The semi-private air travel experience JSX offers includes a streamlined boarding process with no lines, planeside baggage retrieval, and speedy customs.
The new routes, set to begin in the middle of December, will connect Dallas and Los Angeles to Cabo San Lucas, an exclusive resort city at the southern tip of Baja California in Mexico.
From December 15, three weekly flights will launch from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Cabo San Lucas International Airport (CSL), operating on Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
Likewise, flights between Dallas Love Field (DAL) and CSL will also operate three times per week, on Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays, and are set to start on December 16. This route will be the only regular international service in and out of Dallas Love Field.
Passengers flying with JSX can check in at their airports as little as 40 minutes ahead of the scheduled departure time. And even though finding the carrier’s terminal at Dallas Love Field or Cabo San Lucas should be straightforward due to the relatively small size of each airport, it may be trickier knowing where to go at LAX. This is because the airline operates out of Signature Flight Support LAX, a private aviation fixed-based operator that offers exclusive services to private jets and special charters.
Introductory fares on both routes start at just $599 each way. These tickets include at least two checked bags, subject to size and weight restrictions, onboard snacks and drinks (including cocktails and tequilas), and business-class legroom.
Passengers will soon be able to access high-speed internet onboard at no extra cost once JSX launches Starlink – ‘the fastest WiFi in the sky.’
JSX customers on domestic flights can also take along small pets at no extra cost, as long as they can fit under the seat, while extra seats can also be purchased for larger dogs. However, how this policy will work in conjunction with Mexican customs still needs to be clarified.
“We are steadfast in our commitment to easing access to vacation-worthy destinations by offering the most convenient and hassle-free travel possible,” said Alex Wilcox, CEO of JSX. “After the success of our pop-up flights to Cabo last spring, we are thrilled to now offer a seasonal international flight service that provides an opportunity for Customers to enjoy the warm sandy beaches of Mexico this holiday season and skip long lines, unfriendly airports and packed planes.”
