Jet 24 Airlines Pilot Wing 2nd Issue
Miami, FL 1979-1985
Jet 24 began as Jet Charter Service in August 1979 and began services in December 1981. The first flights were freight only between Miami and Caracas using B-707 aircraft. In 1983 Jet 24 received permission to fly passenger charter flights and acquired two DC-10s for charter flights to South American and Europe. Scheduled services began in May 1985 with a route Miami-San Juan-Madrid, then Paris and Zurich were added later. But Jet 24's financial situation deteriorated rapidly and by August 1985 Jet 24 went into Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. By October 1985 there was not money to continue operations and Jet 24 ceased to exist.
