Starting in the spring, the regional airport in St. Augustine will once again offer direct flights to Philadelphia.

The service is resuming as airlines are taking note of the explosive population growth in St. Johns County.

The Nocatee development in the Northern part of the county is one of the fastest-growing areas of the country, and county spokesman Michael Ryan says airlines are taking note.

“For many years, we did not have any passenger flights out of St. Johns County. We had to travel to Jacksonville, Daytona or Orlando,” he said.

As Jacksonville International Airport prepares for the busy Thanksgiving travel season, a new screening program should make it easier for some passengers to get through security.

Food stamps, Zeljko Causevic, and Tim Tebow are in the headlines today.

Not much is known about Paul Anthony Ciancia, the man police say killed one transportation security official and wounded another at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday. Several other people were injured in the shooting.

Ciancia is 23 years old and originally from New Jersey, but was living in Los Angeles at the time of the attack.

So far, authorities have provided no specific motive for the shooting. LA Airport Police Chief Patrick Gannon says the suspect "pulled an assault rifle out of a bag and opened fire in the terminal."

One suspect was wounded, another arrested and at least one more is at-large after an officer involved shooting Wednesday at Jacksonville International Airport.

The incident occurred about 2:30 in the JIA rental car parking garage.

 

JSO Chief Tom Hackney says officers followed a suspected car thief in a white Ford Crown Victoria into the garage who had eluded arrest last week.
