MONTEREY, CA, May 4, 2021 – The revolutionary hop-on jet service that is pioneering simple, fast, and enjoyable air travel experiences—is launching summer flight service to Monterey (MRY) from Burbank (BUR) and Orange County (SNA) starting Friday, June 11, 2021.

Now available for booking online via the JSX website, JSX offers savvy SoCal travelers looking to avoid the worry and stress of busy terminals and packed planes peace of mind in planning upcoming Summer vacations and weekend escapades away from the city. By flying between private terminals on 30-seat jets, JSX is uniquely positioned as one of the only crowd-free alternatives to public air travel with affordable fares starting at $199 each way.

Having just celebrated its 5th anniversary, JSX continues to dramatically improve the air travel experience by offering comfortable, hassle-free travel options for an incredible value. SoCal travelers heading up north to experience the idyllic Monterey seascape can arrive just 20 minutes before departure for a seamless check-in experience that includes at least two checked bags with every fare. Once onboard, JSX encourages all travelers to kick back and relax with a spacious 1×2 seating arrangement boasting business-class legroom and complimentary cocktails inflight.

No dwell time in congested airport terminals means JSX saves customers up to two hours compared to traditional airlines. Travelers who fly JSX can minimize the time spent waiting for their flights and maximize their time on the ground – or on the beach, exploring the pristine coastline of Monterey.
