Pace Airlines (Winston-Salem) yesterday (September 11) laid off its remaining employees and suspended all operations. This represents the second major employee job cut this week. 175-215 employees were let go on Tuesday. The company is currently under investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor for alleged non-payment of employees and has been promising to pay its employees for all deferred payments. Pace is also suing DirectAir’s parent for breach of contract. Charter operations began in 1996 flying a single Boeing 737-200 (N487GS) for the Charlotte Hornets.
