Southern Air emerges from Chapter 11 bankruptcy

Southern Air Holdings, Inc. (Southern Air 2nd) (Cincinnati) announced yesterday (April 15) that it has emerged from Chapter 11, having completed its financial restructuring.

Daniel J. McHugh, Southern Air CEO, said, “We have emerged from this restructuring process with substantially less debt, significantly improved operations and resources, and financial flexibility as a well-capitalized global air cargo carrier.  Today, we are well-positioned both financially and operationally to continue to build Southern Air for the long-term benefit of our customers, suppliers, business partners, crewmembers and employees.  From our new headquarters at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, our largest air operating hub, we are even better able to grow profitably, delivering the highest quality services to our customers and meeting and exceeding their air cargo needs.”

Southern Air entered Chapter 11 on September 28, 2012, and emerged from the process on April 15, 2013, after meeting all closing conditions to the Company’s Plan of Reorganization. The Plan was confirmed by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Delaware on March 14, 2013.
