Pan American Airways (1998–2004)

Pan American Airways (IATA: PAICAO: PAA) was a United States airline that operated scheduled services in the eastern USA, as well as charters for tour operators and services to the Dominican Republic[1]and to Puerto Rico.

History

Clipper Guilford, a Boeing 727.
Tail section of Clipper Republic.

The Pan Am brand was sold by the second incarnation of Pan American World Airways to New Hampshire-based Guilford Transportation Industries, a railroad company headed by Timothy Mellon.

After this transaction, a new airline was established on June 29, 1998. Guilford launched Pan American Airways with a fleet of seven Boeing 727s. This airline was nicknamed by some as "Pan Am III". The third incarnation began scheduled operations on October 7, 1999 and flew to nine cities in New England, Florida, the Canadian Maritimes and Puerto Rico. The focus was on secondary airports such as Orlando Sanford International Airport instead of Orlando International Airport, and Pease International Airport and Worcester Regional Airport instead of the crowded Logan International Airport in the Boston area.

The new owners relocated the company headquarters from Fort Lauderdale to Portsmouth in December 1998.[1]

Guilford ceased operating Pan American Airways on November 1, 2004, but operations were transferred to a subsidiary known as Boston-Maine Airways, which resumed Boeing 727 service under the Pan Am Clipper Connection brand from February 17, 2005. In 2006, Guilford changed its name to Pan Am Systems, and changed the name of its railway divisions to Pan Am Railways.

Boston-Maine operated the airline service until February 29, 2008.[2]
