JSX Becomes First Public U.S. Air Carrier To Implement A.I.-Enabled Thermal Screening, JSX Simpli-Fly
By Lisa Padilla - Monday May 18, 2020
As customers look toward a new era of travel and flying, and carefully weigh out the best options for their health and safety, JSX—recently named one of Fast Company’s “Most Innovative Companies for 2020”—is pioneering a revolutionary travel approach and customer experience dedicated to further enhancing safe, simple, and secure short-haul air travel. With its new ‘JSX Simpli-Fly’ program, the hop-on jet service offers advanced safety and security protocols that allow customers to skip the crowds, hop on, and simply fly. As part of this new program rolling out this week, JSX will become the first public U.S. air carrier to implement SafePointe TSS (Temperature Screening System) ®, a real-time A.I.-enabled thermal screening system that accurately detects elevated body temperatures without the customer stopping to look at a camera or device. The revolutionary new technology utilizes facial detection with key feature location for getting best possible measurements.

The state-of-the-art infrared technology is manufactured in the U.S. and produces the most precise thermal measurements in the security industry. By utilizing highly-sensitive, high-definition imagers that seamlessly scan customers as they walk into the facility, SafePointe TSS® (Temperature Screening System) ® can easily and discretely monitor 100-percent of customers via a simple "red, yellow, green" alert system thus allowing JSX Crewmembers to mitigate potential customer exposure to COVID-19 or other communicable diseases.

Operating from private air terminals on 30-seat jets with business-class legroom and no middle seats, JSX is a unique and affordable alternative to commercial travel with fares starting at $89 one-way. No memberships are required, and flights can be booked at http://www.jsx.com, through the newly launched JSX app or via codeshare partner, JetBlue on various online travel sites.

“We anticipate a major shift in how people will approach travel, with more thought going into the experience, including health and safety standards,” says aviation expert and JSX CEO Alex Wilcox. “Summer and fall travel will likely shift toward micro-travel, as many will be eager to get away but not quite ready for long-distance or international vacations. Now, more than ever, small is beautiful and JSX is proving that by leading the industry with cutting-edge new technology that will provide our customers with both the physical and emotional comfort they will desire in this new normal.”

As people reevaluate how they travel—not just where they are headed, JSX is immediately rolling out new sterilization and contact-less protocols, to ensure customer comfort and confidence as they return to the skies. ‘JSX Simpli-fly’ is a three-pronged initiative that places safety, security, and simplicity at the forefront by focusing on offering the safest and simplest flying experience available today.

Security. This week, JSX is the first public U.S. air carrier to implement A.I.-based, high-definition thermal scanning in all its locations. The SafePointe TSS® walk-through detection solution is an added component to the existing SafePointe TM2 ® weapons detection technology that allows JSX to detect and protect customers from potential threats. The jet service’s progressive security features also include:

 All customers vetted against TSA Secure Flight “no fly list”
 Bag swab for explosives
 Reinforced flight deck

Safety. JSX offers a convenient, viable alternative to large airports and the cattle-car environment of larger aircrafts by operating via Fixed Base Operators and private airport hangars, maintaining control over the space’s capacity at all times. In addition to the award-winning maintenance training programs, JSX’s additional safety measures include:

 Arrive just 20 minutes before the flight from private jet terminals with no long check-in lines or waiting at crowded gates;
 A quick, effortless security screening process that far exceeds TSA requirements;
 Valet parking, contact-less car rentals, and beautifully appointed lounges with free WiFi;

 Free amenities for all customers including two checked bags, drinks, snacks, and complimentary cocktails inflight;
 Deplaning and baggage retrieval within minutes of arrival.

Simplicity. With premium amenities and the launch of its new mobile app and customer ID scan to support contact-less check-in procedures, JSX provides customers with the lowest possible dwell time in the industry and quick non-stop flights. JSX continues to go above and beyond to ensure passenger safety with:

 Seamless check-in to boarding procedures that take no more than 20 minutes
