  • Guillermo Heredia: Tapping into Mexico’s market potential with ALMA

    News | 20 Nov 2007 14:26 | Kerry Reals

Washington Dulles-based Independence Air, which emerged from the ashes of former United Express carrier Atlantic Coast Airlines, launched independent low-cost services with a fleet of CRJ200s in June 2004. However, the carrier was unable to make the model work and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in November 2005, before shutting down two months later. </P> <P><IMG style="PADDING-LEFT: 10px; FLOAT: right; PADDING-BOTTOM: 10px; OVERFLOW: auto; WIDTH: 200px; HEIGHT: 298px" alt="" src="../assets/getAsset.aspx?ItemID=20438" border=
