Shawna Hastings, has been invited to tour the Boeing facilities in Seattle, Washington by Copa Airlines.

It is with great pleasure that I announce that one of our very own, Shawna Hastings, has been invited to tour the Boeing facilities in Seattle, Washington in April. I had sent her in as a candidate in KIN that makes a difference to her team mates as she is infinitely patient and always has a positive attitude. She will also receive 50USD from me just for being chosen.

Hotel accommodation, airfare, transportation will be the responsibility of Copa Airlines. This is not considered a duty travel so per diem is not required. She is also allowed to take a companion and this person will enjoy the same privileges offered to Shawna. 

Not only will she tour the Boeing facility, she will also accompany the aircraft back to Panama in Business Class with the rest of the crew. The aircraft being assembled is the new  sky interior 800 series NG. I am excited for her and she can hardly contain herself.

Over the past three months, Shawna has been a true gem to the team in Kingston.  She works with great enthusiasm at her tasks and help to foster and create a positive working environment. She treats her fellow  team members with dignity and respect. Shawna challenges herself to continuously improve in all aspects of the operation and works hard to fulfill any promise she has made to customers and her colleagues.  She also works hard to live up to the standards set by Copa Airlines,  performing duties assigned to her to the highest standard. Shawna is always pleasant and smiling during the operation of our flights or while just having a conversation with her peers which is very warm and welcoming. Her actions and working together as a team contributes to a positive work environment 

Her actions truly reflect the values of Copa Airlines. 

Team Kingston is proud to present Shawna Hastings as our 1st quarter winner of Tu Haces La Diferencia.

JetBlue Cargo Celebrates Another Great Year!!!!

2014 was an excellent year for JetBlue Cargo.  Our revenue is forecasted to end up 14% Year Over Year.  We introduced 5 new stations to our network and now have import cargo from 5 international locations (MBJ, KIN, SDQ, STI, SJO)!  A lot has happened this year, from the opening or our stations to system upgrades made to iCargo.  Most recently we’ve solidified processes around our international operation and have continued to expand our internal audits which help us to focus continuously on excellent product integrity throughout the system.

We’ve all been happy to see record growth for our airline (over 930 flights a day through the holiday period) and we’re proud to support that growth with an excellent cargo product.  We’ve lived up to the brand!  This doesn’t just happen – there’s been a tremendous amount of great work done throughout our system.  

Our increase in revenue is not just a number – it’s a signal that tells us loudly our customers, now more than ever before, trust us to move their freight.

Thank you, as always, for continuing the effort…  For keeping us SAFE, and the quality of our product EXCELLENT…


Here’s to a great


From EACH of us to EACH of you!
