Company Profile

Company Name: Trans States Airlines

Company Profile: ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​When Trans States Airlines began as Resort Air in 1982, it operated just a handful of Metro II aircraft and carried just under 7,000 passengers during its first year of operation—tourists, primarily, between its headquarters in St. Louis ​and a popular lake two hours south of the city (hence the call sign "Waterski," which Trans States still uses to this day).  However, things hav​e changed a great deal since 1982.  Since that time, Resort Air has evolved from a small boutique carrier into Trans States Airlines, a carrier that now serves 3.5 million passengers a year.  The Metro IIs have been replaced by an all-jet fleet of Embraer 145s, and Trans States now flies on behalf of United Airlines (as United Express), providing service to over 80 cities in North America with over 240 daily flights.   At Trans States, our mission is simp​le:  To remain flexible and responsive to the needs and challenges of our major partner(s) and the aviation industry​, while striving to do our best for our customers.  We are committed to providing safe, reliable and on-time air transportation and to delivering the highest standards in professionalism and customer service.  We’d love the opportunity to demonstrate this commitment to you in person.  Our over 900 employees look forward to welcoming you onboard!
