Jacksonville International Airport (IATA: JAX, ICAO: KJAX, FAA LID: JAX) is a public airport located 12 miles (18 km) north of the downtown of
Jacksonville in Duval County, Florida, United States.
The second phase of the expansion program is being carried out over three years, commencing in mid-2006 and is projected to cost about $170 million.
The new Concourse A and Concourse C are now open; the former concourses have been demolished. Work on Concourse B was given a low priority because the
capacities of Concourses A & C were more than adequate for existing demand.
The economic downturn of 2009 resulted in a significant decrease in passengers and flights. The presence of fewer airplanes prompted the JAA to commence
the demolition of Concourse B in June, 2009 because it was safer and easier for the contractor. The remains of the structure will eventually become part of an
airline club lounge. After the debris was removed, asphalt was laid down for airline ground equipment parking. The concourse itself will be rebuilt when passenger
traffic increases, which the JAA projects in 2013.
