ExpressJet It Is, Goodbye SureJet and So Long Atlantic Southeast
Atlanta, GA. -
Atlantic Southeast Airlines, ASA, will become ExpressJet, XJT. ASA, owned by SkyWest, previously bought ExpressJet, in a further consolidation of air carriers and had came up with the name SureJet as the new combined company's name for ASA. Shortly after the thud, the company recalled the name and stuck with ASA for the time being.
But now, after all things considered, airline officials have decided to call themselves ExpressJet. Company officials decided the name has good brand reputation, and as of 2010 ranked high in customer satisfaction for regional carriers.
The logo remains basically the same as the short lived SureJet, but the text has been replaced with ExpressJet in the same style font.
