The airline was established in 1989 and started operations on August 1, 1989. It had a marketing affiliation with US Airways since its inception, but changed affiliations to Continental Airlines in December 2000, when US Airways did not renew the codeshare agreement. In July 2001 the company announced plans to downsize its fleet and workforce by approximately half and begin a reorganization of the airline. In early 2002 the company began a "micro-hub" operation based in Albany, New York. At its high point in 2003 and 2004 the hub served the following cities: Allentown, Harrisburg, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Burlington, Manchester, Portland, Bangor, Providence, Islip, Hartford/Springfield, White Plains, Ottawa and Montreal, all with a fleet of Raytheon Beech 1900Ds. Service was also provided out Boston's Logan International Airport to Rutland, White Plains, Allentown, Burlington, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Islip, Sarana Lake, and Plattsburgh. Following unprofitable operations as Continental's regional affiliate in Albany and Boston, all operations were gradually shifted towards the midwest in 2005.

Make no mistake about it, CommutAir does not want you to be union - they enjoy the ability to pay you what they want, work you how they want, and to get rid of you when they want.
CommutAir is required by law to supply a list of employees who are eligible to participate in the election.
The hiring of this outside, third party consultant means you can expect CommutAir management to hold one-on-one meetings intended to intimidate you and identify union supporters.
