Southwest Airlines' nonstop service from Jacksonville International Airport to Chicago's Midway Airport, originally slated to begin on Sept. 29, will now kick-off on June 3.

The service will depart Jacksonville at 8:15 a.m., arriving in Chicago at 9:50 a.m. The flight from MDW will depart at 6:40 p.m. and arrive in JAX at 9:55 p.m. The new start date will allow Southwest to capitalize on the busy summer travel season.

This will be the first nonstop air service from Jacksonville to Chicago's Midway. Currently, American and United Airlines fly to Chicago's O'Hare Airport from Jacksonville.
