Jackson, MS to be featured in Southwest Airlines magazine.
Just learned from Ben Allen, effervescent executive director of Downtown Jackson Partners that Jackson, Mississippi will be featured in the August issue of Spirit, the magazine of Southwest Airlines. In its history, it has featured four cities: Jacksonville, Tampa, Tulsa and Kansas City. According to Allen, representatives of the Jackson Convention and Visitors Bureau, the MetroJackson Chamber, Watkins Development and Downtown Jackson Partners made a presentation about the Capital City to the magazine’s production company two days ago. Twenty cities were in the hunt for their 36-page, August 2009 issue, 2.3 million circulation edition.
