CLT-Director Of Hub Operations
We would like to welcome Joe Lovitt who recently joined our team in CLT as the new Director of Hub Operations.
Joe’s career in the airline industry began in 1979 with Continental Airlines in Houston, TX. He has also lived in Bismarck, ND and Columbus, OH where he was the General Manager at both locations.
In 1992, he became tired of the cold weather, so he moved down south where he worked in West Palm Beach and Pensacola.
This past March, Joe retired and spent some time working on his golf game and refinishing furniture until he came to CLT to join the Jetstream Team.
Welcome Joe, we are happy to have you with us

On Sunday, November 3rd, JetStream began the AirTran Airways transition to Southwest Airlines in MEM. Charlie Coyle, Emmett Winters, Rob Swanson, Ben Jones and a few special guests worked together with the rest of our MEM JetStream crew to make this transition a success. Charlie Coyle had a few words to say about the transition:
“Let’s See How Far We’ve Come.” What a song by Matchbox Twenty, but it is also true of what began on the morning of Sunday, November 3rd, 2013 at Memphis International Airport. For several weeks, Team MEM has been training to begin a new phase within our MEM operation. A transition that has been a little over a year in the making, and one that brought a king out to welcome it in.
AirTran Airways transitioned to Southwest Airlines in MEM on Sunday, November 3rd, 2013 at 10:00 am (Central Time). Besides Team MEM welcoming in the new flight, Elvis Presley along with the media welcomed Southwest Airlines to Memphis International Airport. The team led by Emmett Winters, General Manager and Rob Swanson, Shift Manager executed the transition with ease. Of course, the team could not have achieved such a great feat without the assistance of Ben Jones, ROC General Manager, Matt Heid, ROC Supervisor/ Trainer, Chris Hughes, CLT Supervisor/ Trainer and Jeff Henshaw, GSO Supervisor who assisted Emmett and Rob with overseeing the AirTran Ops while Rob was in training.
The efforts by all are a great reflection of how JetStream Ground Services supports and provides exceptional customer service to our airline partners. Our thanks to Team MEM and to all who participated in the weeks that led up to the transition along with those that played a part during the transition week. Your efforts are what make JetStream standout among out competitors.
