Founder Jack & Mary Conahan Pictured
Equipped with only a station wagon, a dream for his future and a lot of ambition, Jack began a company called Central Airport Taxi. It was not a sophisticated business but one of dedication. Jack would pick up packages from the Hazleton Municipal Airport and then deliver them to the businesses and residents around the area.
Pat reflects fondly on thoughts of his father seeing a future in airfreight that at the time no one else saw. All of Jack’s children speak with a pride in their hearts about the dream and determination, not to mention the courage that their father showed in starting this dedicated family business.
Indeed, Central Air Freight is more than a family business; it is the family. “We have all worked in the business for as long as we can remember,” recalls Bob. “I can remember being nine years old and working with my father and brothers.” Danny remembers that his father wanted the business not only for him, but also for his children, and he involved them daily.
The Conahan’s work diligently each and every day to make this business flourish through dedication and satisfaction to their customers and their community. Whether it is a major piece of heavy equipment going overseas, perishable product needed for the life science industry or musical instrument for a musician. Central Air Freight is up for the job.
Employing a business forged by family ties, dedication and built on the timeless ambition of their father. This dedication has proven itself recently when Central Air Freight became recognized and accepted as a preferred carrier providing top-rate service within their local service area.
The Conahan’s would also like to recognize not only the family’s dedication, but also the dedication of all past and present employees who have all helped to make Central Air Freight grow and flourish. Central Air Freight will continue to provide all customers with the dedication and professional service that they have grown accustomed to.
With Central Air Freight, it’s not just business; it’s a family tradition.
