The Jackson airport became very famous and due to high demand its runways was extended so as to accommodated bigger planes and with the increase of more planes wanting to land in the Jackson airport it was proposed that the airports runway should be increased but this raised so much opposition from the National Park Services since there was too much noise other environmental effects such as pollution and hence this proposal was never put to action. But the cries of the National Park Service were heard and jets with engines that did not make so much noise were introduced.
