CMH – Duty Manager
Congratulations to our new Duty Manager in CMH, Ashley Andracchio.
Ashley joined our JetStream team in July 2014 as a Training Coordinator and quickly worked her way up to Duty Manager. Her airline industry career began in 2009 where she worked for airlines such as Piedmont, Air Wisconsin, and Republic Airways.
In her free time, Ashley and her husband love to travel and her passion is cooking. She attended Culinary School while working for Air Wisconsin, but she says she always winds back up at the airport because she really loves aviation.
Congratulations on your new position Ashley, we are happy to have you as part of our team!
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!

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.
