Regions Air Pilot Hat Badge
Smyrna, TN 1996-2007
RegionsAir was known as Corporate Express Airlines from 1996 to 1998, and then Corporate Airlines from 1998 to 2004. Operating as Corporate Express, it flew for Midway Airlines until their 1st shutdown in 2001 and also flew for TWA as Trans World Express out of St. Louis. The airline changed its corporate name to RegionsAir in May of 2004 to end confusion with similarly named airlines. RegionsAir had been the air service provider for many small communities as part of the Federally-subsidized Essential Air Service (EAS) program. RegionsAir operated under a code-sharing agreement with American Airlines until March 2007. At that time, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) grounded the airline, saying there had been problems with the airline's training and certification program.
