(DALLAS, Texas)September 4, 2020 – This Fall, JSX––the revolutionary hop-on jet service dedicated to making short-haul air travel simple and joyful––launches service to "The Biggest Little City in the World" with roundtrip flights to and from Burbank. Air travelers can book online starting today at www.jsx.com for flights beginning on Thursday, September 24, 2020. Tickets start at $89 each way to/from Burbank.

In collaboration with the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority (RTAA) and Regional Air Service Corporation (RASC), JSX is introducing service with four new round-trip flights per week between Reno and Burbank on Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday. The flights will operate between private terminals at Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) and Hollywood Burbank International Airport (BUR). In partnership with the prominent tourism entities promoting air travel to Reno, JSX will provide a safe, worry-free flight experience for those seeking weekend getaways or essential business trips to the stunning Sierra Nevada mountain region.

“We are excited to partner with RTAA and RASC to offer new service between Burbank and Reno, and provide the region with our innovative, simple and safe point-to-point service,” states JSX CEO, Alex Wilcox. “I’m very pleased with this collaboration and want to thank both the Airport Authority and the Regional Air Service Corporation for making this a reality. I know the residents of Reno–Tahoe will love our unique hop-on, crowd-free flights and we can’t wait to welcome them onboard.”

“We are excited to bring this innovative new service to Reno-Tahoe International Airport,” Jessica Sferrazza, Chair of the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board, said. “In these challenging times, our airport slogan is We Move You, Safely. The JSX flight experience offers an easy, quick and safe way for passengers to travel without the crowds you see in most airports.”

The hop-on jet service’s new flight service between Burbank and Reno is widely supported by the Reno and Lake Tahoe communities and numerous entities within the region. The Regional Air Service Corporation (RASC) is made up of dozens of businesses, including lodging properties, business organizations, and destination marketing organizations, all with the shared purpose of supporting air service to Reno-Tahoe International Airport. It has long recognized the importance of connecting the Burbank and Reno markets, and through the cooperative outreach efforts of its partners, Reno-Tahoe International Airport and JSX, it is now able to provide this air service while bringing a new air carrier to the market.

"The Reno and Lake Tahoe community continues to once again show it's true, resilient character as it seeks to support and find opportunities that connect the community to key markets in support of its strong tourism and business economies,” said Andy Chapman, Chairman of RASC. “We are excited to partner with the Reno-Tahoe International Airport and JSX to bring this new air service to both communities and look forward to continuing expanding this partnership."
