Passengers at Jacksonville International Airport are once again moving smoothly through security now that a broken TSA scanner is working again.

JIA spokeswoman Debbie Jones says travelers weren’t so lucky early Tuesday morning, however.

Air Canada said Monday its recently announced nonstop service would begin earlier than it had anticipated. The reason: The Canadian airline wants to accommodate tourists coming to the First Coast for The Players Championship.
