Now that Aero Peru is dead, I was wondering if it would be possible to buy the name and logo. It's too bad that it failed, but the name/logo should go on...where can I find out about buying the "name" ?

At the LIM airport there are still lighted AeroPeru signs as well as painted signs as if the airline was still around. The wall around the airport has AeroPeru markings also. Maybe you could check around there.

Can you really buy an airline name after whatever happened to them, can it go back into business...?

Western, Eastern, Braniff Int'l., NEA, etc...

I don't know you can do that. What does the court have to do with buying an airline name after it deceased services......?

An airline's name and logo are considered an asset that is typically sold off to generate money for creditors (since few airlines simply close up shop owing nobody).

Other times, if an airline is purchased by another, the owner might later sell the name off (as I recall, Delta bought the Frontier name and some assets when the original Frontier collapsed, then sold it to the current Frontier).

Its considered intellecual property... You could write to the bankruptcy court trustee.. or just wait for the trademark to expire and register it

You can definitely purchase a bankrupt airline's trade symbol. Pan Am's blue globe was purchased from the estate of Pan Am for around $1.2 million dollars by what became Pan Am 2.

LanPeru

I don't believe that Cintra (AeroMexico's parent company) has anything to do with the brand anymore. If you remember correctly, AeroPeru came very close to being relaunched by a private group along with the ex-employees of AeroPeru. However, the plans fell through. They even went all the way to leasing a 737 for several months that never took off. So this group is now the owner of AeroPeru's name and logo.

TANS Peru, the government owned airline of Peru, was also interested in purchasing the rights to Faucett's name brand. Faucett was one of the oldest airlines in the region that suffered the same fate like AeroPeru. The plans to acquire the name also fell through. Would have been nice though.

I think its a good a idea to buy a name of an airline that is no longer with us. Nice to take the airline back into the sky. I would buy Eastern Airlines name if i had the money, but i dont.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy Another airline name that would be cool to purchase would be TAESA, the mexican airline that went bankrupt.

I miss seeing this airline in the skies.  Crying
