PAN Am Ghost Or Alive?!

Fri Mar 17, 2000 4:39 am

OK, maybe it's me, maybe I'am slow, but has Panam risen from the dead?
I saw some pictures on Airliners net of a 727 Pan Am dated January 2000.
Is this true? have they rebuild themselves?

There is a "new" Pan Am out there - go to - I beleive they are flying primarily to/from underutilized airports near major metro areas instead of "regular" airports, but check out the site and see for yourself!

Anyone out there fly the new Pan Am yet?????

All the best,

The spirit of PanAm is dead, and only lives on the people who worked for the company. The name has been resurrected. This is the third PanAm. The first met it's demise in 1991. The second in 1998. The thirs was re-started in New Hampshire by a raïlroad conglomerate. They started with "Quiet 727" 727s and operated charter flights all around. They have augemented the charter operation with scheduled service to Orlando-Sanford and Chicago-Gary, In.

Pan Am the third is now flyingf 727-200 with winglets to Bangor, ME, Gary IN, Portsmouth NH, Sanford airport in orlando Florida and is plannig to fly to Pittsburg PA in th spring. Pan Am plans to expland slowly up and down the east coast and the midwest. I hope that Pan Am will have enough money to replace the 727-200 with new planes. (if it has to be narrow body aircraft then hopefully A321's or B757-300)

Casa 212's, J31's?

Fri Mar 17, 2000 11:19 am

I looked up the PanAm registries (they are under Guilford Transportation if you search N numbers at sites like and apparently they have 727-200's, but also about 2 CASA 212's and 3 Jetstream31's. There is a photo of the CASA 212's in the photo database. I was wondering if anyone knows what they are using these aircraft for? Where will they fly them? Are they already using them, or are they not in service yet? It'd be great if anyone knows the answer. Thanks.

The Aviocars are strictly for Pan Am's maintenance operation, hauling engineers & parts and stuff.

Pan Am is back! With headquarters located in Portsmouth, NH, the 3rd Pan Am has been in scheduled service since October of 1999. Their current destinations are Bangor, ME, Sanford/Orlando, FL, Gary/Chicago, IN and starting on March 20th, Pittsburgh, PA. They operate B727-200's, that have been reconfigured from 173 to 149 seats, and winglets too! There are also 2 CASA212's, used primarily for cargo, and 3 Jet Stream J31's, which will eventually be used for passenger service.......not positive on destinations yet.

Doesn't anyone wonder how this all came about?
Isn't it possible that an operator is just using jets that still have PanAm colours? Operators do it all the time.
