Large Order to See 332 Hybrid Aircraft Added to JSX Fleet

Small Pseudo-Carrier Aims for Motley Collection of Eco-Friendly Aircraft

JSX announced its intent to acquire up to 332 hybrid-electric aircraft from a handful of manufacturers including Electra, Aura Aero, and Heart Aerospace.

The firm signed a letter of intent to buy up to 82 of Electra’s 9-seat eSTOL aircraft, with only 32 of that number being a firm order. Aura Aero sees 50 firm orders and 100 options for its 19-seat Era aircraft. Heart Aerospace sees 50 firm orders and 50 options for its 30-seat ES-30 aircraft. The first of JSX’s new hybrid aircraft is expected to be delivered some time in 2028, making them the “first in its category to adopt this impactful cutting-edge renewable energy technology.”

With their new sustainable additions, JSX says it can “dramatically lower the cost of its service and open new flight options at over 2,000 U.S. airports, stimulating local economies and empowering regional mobility and connectivity for communities devoid of regular air service today.”

“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,” says Alex Wilcox, JSX CEO & Co-Founder. “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.”
