Greetings from our corporate headquarters.

We hope you are having an amazing and safe summer!

JetStream has seen a lot of changes over the past few months in the stations and at the corporate level. Many of you have had the opportunity to meet Jim Martin as he has been working as a consultant for JetStream and we are pleased to announce that he has decided to join us permanently as our new Vice President of Operations.

Jim has a long history in the airline industry having worked for Piedmont, US Airways, and ARINC. For Piedmont and US Airways he worked in several roles including management, technical support, and customer service. For ARIN he served as their Vice President of their Managed Services Division overseeing the development of the business to over 35 airports in North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East and Asia / Pacific. His last service to ARINC was in Singapore where he had oversight of all their corporate business in 11 countries throughout the region as their VP and Managing Director. Please welcome Jim to our team. He is anxious to continue building on his recent initiatives and to support your operations.

We are very happy to have Jim as part of the JetStream team. If you get a moment, please reach out and give him a warm welcome!

Our blue canvas bags that we use in our hub locations were a hit in PHX for the American Airlines Safety Day. Our PHX team used them to carry granola bars, bracelets, and cool wrap handouts. During break time and later in a briefing, random team members were asked to stand up, pick one team mate and compliment them. After their kind words, they were each given their “good neighbor reward”. Everyone LOVED it!!!
