Trans States Airlines to Operate as United Express
By the Fall, and for ten more
years, Trans States Airlines will be running as many as 25
fifty-seat regional jets under the United Express banner, the
result of a deal announced Thursday.
Trans States joins Mesa Air Group Inc., SkyWest Inc. and
privately held Air Wisconsin Airlines Corp. in United Express;
negotiations with United's other regional partner, Atlantic Coast
Airlines, are bogged down for the time being.
United still needs court permission to go through with the
deal, as its parent, UAL, is in Chapter 11; no large roadblocks to
the proposed deal are being mentioned, though, by either side.
Trans States worked with United before, but not since the last
contracts expired three and a half years ago. The airline already
flies as American Connection and US Airways Express.
