The regional air carrier that provides service to Albany and Valdosta will soon have a new name as it undergoes a merger with another airline.@

Atlantic Southeast Airlines announced it will change it's name to "SureJet" upon completion of it's merger with Express-Jet Airlines.

ASA acquired Express Jet in November, and wanted to come up with a new name to foster unity between the two sets of employees. But Albany's airport director says the flying customer will see little change.

Yvette Aehle said "The only thing that is going to change, you will see different uniforms. You'll see a different airplane livery, or the paint on the airplane."  "You will still see the same employees here. We'll have the same exact flight schedule. Nothing is going to change."

The change to SureJet will become official when the merged company gets it's operating certificate from the FAA.  That will likely happen at the end of the year. The combined airline's headquarters are in Atlanta.
