JSX is an independent American regional airline that describes itself as a "hop-on jet service" offering short-haul flights between Arizona, California, Nevada, and Washington in the United States. The airline sells its flights as public charters under DOT 14 CFR Part 380, and flights are operated by its subsidiary Delux Public Charter (as JSX Air) under FAA Part 135. It began operations in April 2016, and offers service to nine destinations as of August 2019[update].
|Commenced operations||April 19, 2016|
|Company slogan||"Hop on"|
|Headquarters||Dallas, Texas, United States|
|Key people||Alex Wilcox (CEO)|
The airline was originally founded as JetSuiteX by parent company JetSuite in April 2016. According to JetSuite CEO Alex Wilcox, the air carrier was created in response to declining short-haul traffic and the rise in fares on short-haul flights in the United States. Wilcox attributes these phenomena in part to long wait times in airports. JSX targets time-sensitive travelers who seek an experience better than that of traditional low-cost flights but not as expensive as private jet travel.
On August 8, 2019, JetSuiteX was re-branded as JSX.
JSX is a subsidiary of JetSuite, a private jet charter company with which it shares a headquarters in Dallas, Texas. JetBlue and Qatar Airways are minority shareholders in both JSX and JetSuite. Its CEO is Alex Wilcox, who was a founding executive of both JetBlue and Kingfisher Airlines.
