SETX Flights to DFW taking off!
American Airlines (AA) representatives have been touring Southeast Texas to create awareness about the return of AA to Jack Brooks Regional Airport. The representatives have also been touting a rewards program that offers double miles for the first few months of service, if you join the free AAdvantage program available at AA.com.
Alex Rupp, manager at Jack Brooks, says that the convenience alone is worth getting excited about but also stresses that flying from Southeast Texas, “saves time, involves less stress, helps reinvest in our local community, and puts less wear and tear on your car.” Also, he adds, parking at Jack Brooks is free.Share Read More
Jack Brooks teams up with e.Sullivan Advertising & Design.
Originally named Jefferson County airport, this facility has served area residents since the World War II era. Jefferson County Commissioners purchased land to build the airport in 1941, and its development, which included three runways, a taxiway system and apron facilities, began the following year, with initial construction completed in early 1944. Eastern Airlines conducted the first scheduled flight in March of that year. During the War, the airport also served U.S. Marine Air Corps Dive Bomber Squadron No. 931 as a base for advanced training. Pilot trainees used floating targets in the Gulf of Mexico off Sabine Pass for gunnery and dive-bombing practice.Share Read More
