Hop-on jet company JSX is expanding its flight offerings from Reno next month with additional routes to Las Vegas and Oakland.

Service will begin May 21, according to an April 14 press release from the company; both routes will operate twice daily on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, and initial one-way rates start at $99.

The new flights from Oakland and Las Vegas complement JSX’s existing Reno service from Orange County and Burbank. Service is offered through a private terminal at Stellar Aviation, 485 S. Rock Blvd., thanks to a partnership with Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority and the Regional Air Service Corporation.

One of the allures of JSX for business professionals is that since it offers service between private terminals in various cities, travelers can arrive 20 minutes before departure, in addition to not being charged to carry up to 3 bags.

According to previous reports, JSX, which offers a fleet of 30-seat jets, was scheduled to relaunch Reno service in May of last year with flights to Burbank and Las Vegas; however, that was delayed due to the pandemic.

Service resumed in September, with flights to Orange County and Burbank, but without Vegas. That changes next month.

“We are pleased to expand our service for Oakland and Las Vegas residents to and from Reno-Tahoe this spring for safe, simple, and socially distanced getaways as domestic travel takes off,” JSX CEO Alex Wilcox said in a statement. “With the easing of travel restrictions, our distinctive form of flying allows JSX to quickly pivot to serve destinations people want to fly to while eliminating the hassles and headaches associated with congested airports, irksome middle seats, and long TSA lines.”

Founded in 2016 as JetSuiteX (the company rebranded in 2019), JSX now offers flights from 12 destinations: Reno and Las Vegas in Nevada; Burbank, Orange County, East Bay/Napa/Concord, Oakland, Los Angeles and San Diego in California; Dallas and Houston in Texas; and Phoenix and Salt Lake City.
