Business Traveler (USA) - - UPFRONT -

It sure looks likes East­ern Air Lines is com­ing back. Ac­cord­ing to the com­pany’s most re­cent tweet from Jan. 15:“The new East­ern Air Lines has moved into its new of­fices- Bldg. 5A- MIA- the for­mer East­ern Op­er­a­tions Cen­ter from 1965 to 1991.”

A press re­lease states the air­line has filed an ap­pli­ca­tion for a Cer­tifi­cate of Pub­lic Con­ve­nience and Ne­ces­sity with the Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion, which is re­quired to op­er­ate an air­line in the US. In ad­di­tion, East­ern says it is work­ing on fil­ing the Part 121 cer­ti­fi­ca­tion with the Federal Avi­a­tion Ad­min­is­tra­tion shortly and has re­tained le­gal coun­sel and con­sul­tants for this ex­press pur­pose.

The air­line has al­ready an­nounced that their fleet will con­sist of Air­bus A319 and A320s and that Amadeus has been selected as the reser­va­tion sys­tem.

“We are hon­ored to have the op­por­tu­nity to launch an air­line bear­ing the iconic East­ern Air Lines name, ”said East­ern’s pres­i­dent and CEO Ed­ward Wegel.“We have re­cruited a world class board of di­rec­tors and a highly ex­pe­ri­enced man­age­ment team to guide and lead this ef­fort.”
