The Hop-On Air Service Is Ranked One of the Top 5 Most Innovative Companies in the Travel Category

JSX's fleet is comprised of 30-seat, Embraer 135 and 145 aircraft.

JSX––the revolutionary hop-on air service dedicated to making short-haul air travel simple, joyful, and reliable––has been named today by Fast Company as one of the world’s “Most Innovative Companies for 2020,” ranked within the top 5 in the travel category.

The prestigious annual list—released today—honors the businesses making the most profound impact on both industry and culture, showcasing a variety of ways to thrive in today’s fast-changing world. This year’s MIC list features 434 businesses from across 39 countries.

“We’re deeply honored to have been selected for Fast Company’s highly-regarded list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2020,” notes JSX CEO, Alex Wilcox. “Over the past four years, JSX has increasingly filled a gap in the domestic market for short-haul travel, connecting travelers to the most desirable destinations for weekend getaways and frequent business trips. Through it all, we have steadfastly committed to the vision of placing joy back into the flying through our hassle-free, hop on air service –– a differentiator that truly distinguishes us from the set.”

Now more than ever, specifically in light of the current Coronavirus outbreak, many intrepid travelers are seeking alternative modes of less crowded travel & transportation, namely short-haul private jet travel. Fortunately, when it comes to the West Coast, JSX––the go-to hop-on air service allows travelers to ‘Keep Calm and Hop On’—offering a viable, crowd-free and carefree form of short-haul air travel. As the appeal of private jet travel continues to boom—and not just for the super-rich—travelers are flocking to private jet and charter plane brokerage companies, looking to avoid the closed-in, cattle-car environment of an average commercial plane. JSX provides an affordable alternative with fares starting at $89 one-way while allowing travelers to arrive just 20 minutes before departure at private terminals. Companies may also privately charter JSX’s fleet of 30-seat aircraft for essential workers to and from plants and server farms as a solution to the current travel restrictions.

Founded in 2016, the Dallas-based company has amassed a reputation for joyful, simple, and reliable air travel by providing seamless ‘hop-on air service’ for all, hospitable customer service, line-free/hassle-free travel with a quick, effortless security screening process that far exceeds TSA requirements, and premium in-flight service that every traveler deserves and more importantly, desires.

Recently honored by Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX) as the 2020 “Best Overall Regional” air carrier in North America, JSX is dramatically improving air travel for thousands of travelers each month by offering the hassle-free experience of flying between private terminals on 30-seat, Embraer 135 and 145 aircraft. With more than 500 weekly flights focused on destinations within 500 miles of each other, the young jet service has quickly become the go-to flying option that efficiently gets travelers to where they want to be, whether for work, play, or both.

Beyond the increasing frequency of short-haul flights and route network expansion, JSX’s success can be attributed to its forward-thinking mindset of simply offering travelers what they want through a variety of distinctive amenities and services, such as:

  •     Arriving just 20 minutes before departure
  •     Seamlessly checking in up to three complimentary free bags
  •     All seats come with business-class leg room along with free snacks and drinks, including cocktails.
  •     Pet-Friendly: JSX charges $0 for pets in under-seat carriers
  •     JSX counts on JetBlue as a codeshare partner; TrueBlue members may earn points on JSX flights

Furthermore, JSX is an industry leader in corporate social responsibility, embracing practices that underscore their ethos of inclusivity. A few highlights include being recently designated as a “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality”, earning a score of 100 within the 2020 Corporate Equality Index; and being the First Autism Awareness Certified air carrier.

Fast Company’s editors and writers sought out the most groundbreaking businesses on the planet and across myriad industries. They also judged nominations received through their application process.

The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.

“At a time of increasing global volatility, this year’s list showcases the resilience and optimism of businesses across the world. These companies are applying creativity to solve challenges within their industries and far beyond,” said Fast Company senior editor Amy Farley, who oversaw the issue with deputy editor David Lidsky.

Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies Issue (March/April 2020) is now available online at fastcompany.com/most-innovative-companies/2020, as well as in app form via iTunes and on newsstands beginning March 17, 2020. The hashtag is #FCMostInnovative.
