Atlantic Southeast Airlines

Atlantic Southeast Airlines was founded in 1979 in Atlanta, Ga., by three determined entrepreneurs who dreamed of providing convenient, safe and frequent air transportation between outlying destinations and Atlanta. From its first flight – aboard a 19-passenger Twin Otter between Columbus, Ga., and Atlanta – to today, ASA has enjoyed tremendous fortune, growth and success.

In 1984, ASA was selected by Delta Air Lines as one of the first partners in the Delta Connection program. Then, following 20 years of operation and 15 years of partnership with the mainline carrier, ASA was acquired by Delta in 1999. The acquisition by Delta marked the beginning of a period of unprecedented growth for ASA, as the airline grew its fleet by more than 100 aircraft and its employee base by more than 3,000 team members.

With success in its corner and a bright future on the horizon, ASA began the next chapter in its storied history on Sept. 8, 2005, when the airline was acquired by Utah-based SkyWest, Inc. Together with its new sister carrier SkyWest Airlines, ASA now is a part of the world’s largest regional airline alliance.

With 800 average daily departures to more than 135 destinations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean, they're committed to showing every customer their passion for safety and personalized service.


ASA aspires to be the most trusted and respected regional airline in the eyes of our customers, team members, shareholders and competitors by:
