JetStream started a new contract with Frontier Airlines at Charlotte Douglas International Airport. The startup date was originally February 12th, but because of the terrible weather and snow, the first flight was not until February 13th. Our team pushed through the craziness and cold to make for a successful startup. Thank you team for all of your hard work, patience and dedication!

Getting the Airbus tow bar ready
Frontier’s first arrival requires that the aircraft stops short of the stop mark and gets towed the rest of the way in on the lead-in line.

The first pushback: safe and on-time.
