JACKSONVILLE, FL - December 29, 2011 — The Jacksonville Aviation Authority, in conjunction with Priva Technologies, announced today it will launch Flex, a new customer service for expedited access to airport security checkpoints, at Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) on Friday, December 30, 2011. This service is in addition to, and does not replace, the existing Preferred Passenger Lane, which allows expedited checkpoint access for premier or first class travelers.
Flex card holders and day-pass participants will get consistent, front-of-line access to the TSA ID check at airport screening checkpoints. Flex membership is through an online application at www.Go-Flex.com beginning Friday, December 30. Participants do not have to submit to background checks or provide biometric information.
Flex participants can choose either an annual membership at $150 or a one day pass at $20, depending on their travel needs. For a limited time, during the JAX launch period, a special introductory rate will be available at $100 for the annual membership. Family and corporate plans are also available by contacting Flex. Additionally, former Registered Traveler members are eligible for a special offer at a reduced price.
“Providing an outstanding, innovative airport experience for our passengers is a top priority and Flex will provide a new level of convenience. We are pleased to be working with Priva Technologies to bring Flex to Jacksonville,” said Steve Grossman, Executive Director/CEO of the Jacksonville Aviation Authority.
Charles Chambers, of Priva Technologies’, Inc., noted, “We are thrilled about the opportunity to work with the Jacksonville Aviation Authority to launch Flex at JAX and look forward to announcing similar agreements with other U.S. airports in the near future.”
