About Us

Welcome to "Find A Consolidator"

History: Founding Publisher Clif Cooke began his travel career in Pan Am Airlines' passenger services department, where he worked for 11 years, before joining TWA in 1966. After seven years with TWA, Cooke left to start Jet Airtransport Exchange, otherwise known as JAX. JAX developed the first computerized database of global charter flights and established an 800-line to provide travel agents with charter flights information. After his first year in business, Cooke decided to print and distribute this information on charter flights to travel agents, in effect starting JAX FAX Travel Marketing Magazine. Over the years, with airline deregulation and the growth of consolidators, JAX FAX's focus switched from that of providing charter information to being a directory of airline consolidator information. Since then, JAX FAX has grown to include editorial content as well, including FAM trip listings and more. Upon his retirement in 2001, his son Doug Cooke became publisher.
