Merger Between the Two Airlines Appears Promising
September 3, 2010 - Atlantic Southeast Airlines (ASA) pilots, represented by the Air Line Pilots Association, Int’l (ALPA), today expressed strong support for the pilots of ExpressJet and the proposed merger of the two airlines. Just last month, ASA’s parent company, SkyWest Holdings Inc., announced it intends to purchase ExpressJet and to combine it with ASA. This week, the ASA and ExpressJet pilot groups developed a framework with the managements of SkyWest and ASA to complete a transition agreement and to address pilot concerns.
