Airports are commonly known for their hustle and bustle. Throngs of excited
and sometimes weary travelers race from terminal to terminal in an attempt to make their connecting leg of an exciting journey or to catch that last and seemingly endless flight home. Regardless of destination, airports can be grueling and exhausting. Sometimes even more afflicting is airport food. Rows of hastily prepared grab-

Some airport meals can be so disappointing that the package of salted peanuts or crushed pretzels miraculously looks like a five-star meal. However, the Jet-a-Way Café, located at the Stennis International Airport (SIA), is aiming to change that perception and so far, they are definitely on the right path.
SIA opened in the mid-1960s in the Hancock County community as a general
aviation and military-focused airport. Over the years, SIA’s strategic importance has grown tremendously, bolstering the need for amenities that were not only attractive to the public, but also accessible. Following the opening of a new terminal after Hurricane Katrina, Jet-a-Way Café, was born. Operated by Million Air Stennis, this brilliantly crafted café has quickly become a go-to eatery for travelers, airport staff and local residents. Handcrafted meals served in a fun and exciting atmosphere make the Jet-a-Way Café the place to be for delicious food and family fun.
Jet-a-Way Café’s menu is straightforward and unpretentious and offers amazing quality meals at affordable prices.
