We're Hiring: Ontario Hub Manager (KONT)

After 3 years and a few months of loyal service with MetroAir, Tim Moskal has decided to step down as your Ontario Hub Manager.

Tim will stay on as a pilot for MetroAir and hopes to return to management when his schedule allows it. We would like to thank Tim for his years of dedicated service as a Hub Manager!
