Trans States Airlines

Private Airline - Aviation 6 Active Jobs

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 served nearly 2.5 million passengers in 2014.  The Metro IIs have been replaced by an all-jet fleet of Embraer 145s, and Trans States now flies on behalf of United Airlines (as United Express) and American Airlines (as American Eagle), providing service to over 70 cities in North America with approximately 237 daily flights.

At Trans States, our mission is simple:  To remain flexible and responsive to the needs and challenges of our major partners 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 on board!
