National Airlines Files for Bankruptcy

National Airlines filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protection
, but will continue to operation into Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS --National Airlines filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on December 6 citing escalating fuel prices, but vowed to continue business operations and uninterrupted services to its customers.

"We want to assure our customers that we will continue to operate on a normal schedule without interruption, and we are dedicated to serving our customers' needs today while we strengthen our ability to provide them with high-quality service well into the future," said Michael J. Conway, president and CEO of the airline. "Protecting customer interests and providing them with exceptional customer service has been and remains one of our top priorities."

He added, "We have carried more than 2 million passengers in less than 16 months of flying. We have been recognized as one of the best airlines in the industry for customer service. We are operating with unit costs that are lower than any other U.S. major airline. And we have the best employees, bar none. The fact of the matter is, the more established airlines have deeper pockets that help them to withstand these kinds of fuel prices.

Founded in 1995, National Airlines provides daily nonstop flights from Chicago Midway, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Los Angeles, Miami, Newark, New York JFK, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Washington, DC to Las Vegas. It is partners with Harrah's Entertainment which owns numerous gaming properties around the world, including Harrah's, The Rio Suites and the Showboat Hotel Casino in Las Vegas.
