JSX recently celebrated its one-year anniversary providing commercial passenger flights out of Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport. Formerly known as Jefferson County Airport, Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport is a 20-minute drive north of Denver off US-36 in Broomfield. 

While Rocky Mountain Metro is primarily used by private aircraft, flight schools and firefighting aircraft in the summer, JSX started flying public charter jet service from the airport in November 2022. The air carrier uses 30-seat Embraer regional jets flying out of private terminals. 

Passengers need to arrive about 20 minutes before departure and enjoy business class legroom, along with Starlink Wi-Fi service. The company said it provides an “effortless,” TSA-approved security process. JSX also allows small dogs and cats to travel on board, in pet carriers, for a fee. Two checked bags are included in their standard “Hop On” fare.  

Currently, JSX flies directly from Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport (BJC) to private terminals in Scottsdale, Arizona (SCF); Burbank, California (BUR); Las Vegas, Nevada (LAS); and Dallas Love Field (DAL). 

As of Jan. 31, round-trip prices posted on the JSX website to the above-mentioned destinations fell within a $450-$750 price range.

Globally, JSX operates up to 120 flights daily on 48 regional aircraft to destinations across the United States, Mexico and the Bahamas.

While currently using conventional jets, JSX recently announced its intention to acquire over 300 hybrid electric aircraft. They expect to take delivery of their first hybrid aircraft in 2028.
