A Little More About Us

Chart-Air & Tours, was founded on the premise that nothing can compare to personal service and feeling like part of the family. Remaining true in form, Joe instilled in the company the very same objective. Designing and delivering a la carte customized programs to suit each client's needs and treating every client like family. 

Joe is a distinguished veteran of this business, long recognized for both his passion of the travel industry and his distinct knowledge of it. Alone, he started the company from the ground up. His seasoned experience in the field transcends through his personable relationships  and high volume loyal clients. He single-handedly generated revenues high in the millions for charter airlines, some flying only one plane at the time and helped them grow to become some of the best in their class today, such as Miami Air. Joe also introduced the first chartered flight from Sao Paulo, Brasil to London, UK, via Georgetown, putting him on the map and opening doors to business to come
Serving as the former Director of Braniff Airways in Brasi, Joe exceeded all company expectations and set precedence for airlines to follow. Years later, he was asked to take over as Director for British United Airways.

As a businessman seeking opportunities, Joe relocated his family to South Florida to open and run a successful freight forwarding company, JPH International. A moniker that derived from Joseph, Philippe one of his three sons
and his wife Hilda. Philippe, a Florida International University dean's list grad, honed in on his business savvy to grow the company securing clients worldwide. Hilda, a well-accomplished attorney from Brasil, kept operations in flow. The family-team held court for global freight-forwarding. 

Keeping  it in the family, was a priority then and remains to be today.   
Joe credits his business savoir-faire to traveling the globe all his life, sealing relationships all over the world and drawing from international experiences. France, Vietnam, Lebanon, Brasil - all places he has called home, but his heart chose to settle in Miami and grow his family. His refined experience in flight charters extends to his passion for planes and flying, once a fun-natured pilot himself

Joe maintains the company as a family-owned business. The Chart-Air & Tours team includes his wife Hilda Bonuma Jacquemin as COO, a former attorney from Sao Paulo, Brasil overseeing all operations and daughter Sandra who later joined the team bringing 15 years of experience, directing all the company's Marketing and Business Development efforts. Supported by a team of professionals -- every individual is considered part of the family. The internet has transformed agencies into a less personable environment.  Joe leads the company with the same quality principles, by not conforming but rather evolving keeping relationships personable. It is for this reason, that hundreds of travel agencies continue to return for their own security of knowing they receive top-class service and always treated like family
