GeorgiaSkies was an American commuter airline brand founded by Pacific Air Holdings to operate flights in Georgia after the airline was awarded an Essential Air Service contract to serve Athens and Macon, Georgia. The airline started flights on September 29, 2008 and used the airline identifiers and call signs of its parent company Pacific Wings.[1] The airline was headquartered in Dallas, Texas.[2]

Cessation of service[edit]

GeorgiaSkies reportedly no longer flies between Macon and Atlanta,[3] although GeorgiaSkies has a press release stating that "GeorgiaSkies has been ordered to continue serving the City until a replacement carrier can be found."[4]

Former Destinations[edit]

GeorgiaSkies' system map showed the airline serving the Atlanta and Macon destinations.[5] However, GeorgiaSkies has reportedly stopped flying between those two destinations.[3] The airline ceased operating in late summer of 2012.
