Long live Pan Am
In the beginning of week there was a next reincarnation when - that of the airline Pan Am well-known for the whole world. The successor ruined in 1991 Pan Am World Airways, gone bankrupt half a year back company Pan Am Airlines Inc. It is sold for $28,5 million to the American operator of railways Guilford Transportation Industries Inc.

Trade mark Pan Am world famous, but does not bring to the owners of good luck. The first planes with the blue globe on a tail - logo Pan Am World Airways - have risen in air in 1927. The company quickly developed and soon became one of the largest world air carriers. But in 1988 by plane Pan Am which was flying by over the Scottish city of Lokerbi, the explosive has blown up. 270 persons were lost, and it became the death sentence of the company. Three years Pan Am struggled with losses then has been compelled to declare bankruptcy.
but the blue globe stayed in oblivion not for long: has soon been formed Pan Am Airlines Inc. The successor has decided to master the market of so-called cheap aviatransportations (the scanty price of the ticket at a service minimum). Planes Pan Am began to fly to 14 cities of Florida, in cities northeast and srednezapadnoj parts of America and in Puerto - Riko. But the excessive hobby for a dumping has led to that Pan Am Airlines Inc. Too has gone bankrupt.
in the beginning of this week an airline name, its planes completing and flight certificates has got for $28,5 million Guilford Transportation Industries Inc. All of us pray that you keep in the sky planes with the well-known blue globe on a tail - has told at signing of the contract on sale the judge on affairs of bankruptcy of Dzhej Kristol.
the New owner will be engaged while only in charter transportations. At present Pan Am will be three Boeing - 727. From 1400 persons in staff remains only 130. In the near future the company plans increase in flight park. Besides, new owners Pan Am bear plans of an exit for the international market of passenger aviatransportations. In their opinion, the blue globe is very strong emotional symbol which till now know and remember in many countries.
