You're a bit late. Thats been known for awhile. It was announced when they stopped scheduled ops if I remember correct.



Doors open, right hand side, next stop is Springfield.

That sounds like a better use of the planes. As a scheduled airline MaxJet and the other premium airlines like EOS and Silverjet couldn't compete on numbers of destinations or frequency with BA or AA. It's also difficult to compete without being able to award frequent flyer miles that can be used to other destinations the way large international carriers can. As a charter carrier, they can carry large groups of people nearer to their destinations in an all premium aircraft. That's something even large carriers can't do.

Old news ---

As part of the estate liquidation, NCA Group which runs primarily sports team charters purchased their certificate and plans to operate two aircraft on its already established business.

In other works, yes its MAXjet in name (why anyone would bother to keep it I dont know), but its a totally different group of folks involved.

Forgive my ignorance on the matter, but will any of the same crews be involved, or must they reapply?

They have to keep the MAXjet name because that is the name on the certificate. They could change it later, but all of the operational authorities are under MAXjet. Actually, the ATA Airlines certificate is also for sale. They have keep a few L-1011 aircraft on the certificate in order to keep it active, otherwise it becomes dormant after about 60 days and must be surrendered to the FAA.



35 years of American Trans Air/ATA Airlines, 1973-2008. A great little airline that will not be soon forgotten.

You can use any marketing name you wish irregadless of the name on the certificale. Simply a dba. For instance just shutdown Champion Air's certificate still says MGM Grand.
p.s.-anyhow MAXjet real name during the certification process was Skylink.

OK, from the certificate standpoint perhaps, but woud it not be correct to say that certain DOT authorities, exemptions, etc. cannot be transferred simply by a dba? I can think of several instances like this where names where not changed. Its just got to be easier to leave it as it is, at least initially.
