Aha! Airlines cancels all flights, parent ExpressJet files for bankruptcy

The airline is telling customers who had purchased tickets on future flights to contact their credit card company to get a refund.

SPOKANE, Wash. – Aha! Airlines, a newer airline that offered service between Reno and several west coast cities, including Spokane, has ceased all flight operations. The announcement comes after its parent company, ExpressJet Airlines, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

In an update posted to its website, Aha! Said a combination of market and economic conditions led to the decision. All flights are canceled as of August 22, 2022.

Aha! Airlines is telling people who purchased tickets on future flights to contact their credit card company for a refund on tickets. The airline said it is not able to help people with alternative travel plans.

Aha! Airlines launched service from Spokane International Airport in December 2021. The airline offered flights three days a week between Spokane and Reno.

Here are more details about refunds as posted by Aha! Airlines:

Refunds

Customers who paid by credit card and do not receive substitute transportation should file a claim with their credit card company. Write to your credit card company at the address listed on your monthly statement for disputing a charge. (This might not be the address where you send your payment.)

State your account number. Enclose a photocopy of the ticket, itinerary or receipt if possible, or indicate the price of the transportation and the date it was purchased. If the transportation was partially used, identify the used and unused segments.

State that ExpressJet Airlines is in bankruptcy and has ceased operations, that you will not receive the services that you charged to your account, and that you are requesting a credit pursuant to the Fair Credit Billing Act.

The credit card issuer must receive this notice no later than 60 days after the date that you received the first monthly statement that listed the ExpressJet Airlines charge, although credit card companies sometimes waive this deadline.

If you cannot take advantage of the credit card option described above, you can file a claim in the bankruptcy proceeding. The claim must be filed on Form B-410, “Proof of Claim.” You can obtain this form from any US courthouse, or click here to find the form on the web.
