Need Info on Transtar Airlines

Wed Dec 16, 1998 2:13 pm

I'm looking for any info on Transtar Airlines which operated from LAX-HNL in the early 1990's using DC-10's. Does anyone know how long they were in operation, or when they began operations? Thanks.

I am not sure how long they were in operation but i do know they operated flights for Skybus during the early 1990's with 737 aircraft. I think they flew from Ft. lauderdale to islip and hartford or something. They only had one or two DC-10's and they flew them under contract i think for Suntrips from LAX to HON. The original Transtar was owned by Southwest and flew MD-80's but this is a different company
