Staff at Jacksonville International Airport take the mandate seriously and do everything they can to enforce it. While the overwhelming majority of travelers are compliant with the mask mandate, there will always be a few bad apples. We would encourage any traveler concerned about mask issues to call our airport operations center (Airport Police) at 904-741-2040.
