Eastern Air Lines Making a Comeback?
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.”
