Semi-private jet flights launch from US to Mexico

Passengers of semi-private jet company JSX are now able to travel to Los Cabos from the United States.

Besides offering luxury flights within the U.S., JSX now offers a route to Los Cabos from Los Angeles Airport (LAX) and as of Dec. 16, from Dallas Love Field Airport (DAL) as well. The two routes are the carrier’s first international services.

Unlike other private carriers, JSX doesn’t require a membership to book a flight. Planes offer first-class-style seating, free drinks and gourmet snacks. Checked baggage is also included, and small pets can fly for free provided they fit in an under-seat carrier.

Since JSX flies out of private jet terminals, passengers go through expedited security checks, avoiding TSA security. That means the boarding process for international passengers bound for Los Cabos takes around 40 minutes.

With rates starting at $599, the LAX round trip to Los Cabos operates on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, while the DAL flights operate on Monday, Friday and Saturday.

More information is available on the JSX webpage.
