  1. JSX Transitioning To Sustainable Flying With Hybrid-Electric Order
    For small community air service in the future, JSX will be using hybrid-electric aircraft. This is why they recently made a large order for several types of hybrid-electric aircraft. In fact, it is an order for 332 aircraft between manufacturers Electra, Aura Aero, and Heart Aerospace. To break down this multi-manufacturer order JSX signed LoI (Letter of Intent) to acquire up to 82 of the 9-seat Electra eSTOL aircraft with 32 firm orders and 50 options, up to 150 of the 19-seat Aura Aero Era with 50 firm orders and 100 options, and up to 100 of the 30-seat Heart Aerospace ES-30 with 50 firm orders and 50 options, representing its commitment to the renewal of low-impact regional transportation in North America.
  2. Alex Wilcox, JSX CEO & Co-Founder, commented: "JSX is, by far, America’s highest rated and most innovative air carrier, and today’s order of hybrid-electric aircraft exemplifies our commitment to achievable, customer-friendly, carbon-reducing solutions that will offer the lower costs essential to providing vital air service to smaller communities across the country. As the network airlines order ever-larger aircraft it is inevitable that more and more small markets will be abandoned. Electra, Aura Aero, and Heart Aerospace are visionary organizations that share in JSX’s commitment to serving smaller communities, working together with us to weave sustainable regional air travel back into the fabric of American commerce and freedom of movement."
  3. JSX’ small community-friendly Part 135 and Part 380 Public Charter operations, combined with the exceptional performance capabilities of these hybrid-electric airplanes, enables service opportunities to thousands of federally funded airports otherwise inaccessible to people who can’t own or charter an entire aircraft. This, combined with going forward in a much more sustainable manner of operations with hybrid-electric STOL aircraft makes the investment worthwhile.
