The year was 1979 and the Jetpak idea was born. At first, Jetpak was limited to transport from one airport to another. But customers also needed transport to and from the airports. The result was a cooperation between courier service AdenaPicko’s and Jetpak. This happened in 1986 and 5 years later AdenaPicko’s became a part of Jetpak.
