St. Petersburg, West Palm Beach, Fort Myers, Myrtle Beach and Wilmington are some other destinations that Southeast Airlines serviced. The airline gave high fuel costs as a reason for the decision to cease its operations. It announced in a company statement in 2004 that the airline had made its final landing and would suspend all its operations. There has not been any official comment on a possible revival of the airline.
The airline commenced its operations in 1999. Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport acted as its operation base. The airline’s fleet consisted of 10 planes, including two McDonnell Douglas MD-80 and Douglas DC-9 aircrafts. The airline laid off 364 employees and left thousands of passengers stranded with worthless tickets when it ceased its operations.
