October 2012: The USA Department of Transportation (DOT) issued a $300,000 fine to Xtra Airways (CIN) for violating passenger protection regulations. According to the (DOT), the Boise, Idaho-based (CIN) was one of several carriers operating flights for Myrtle Beach, Direct Air (MBD) & Tours. Direct Air (MBD) ceased operating in March, and failed to pay Xtra Airways (CIN) for operating flights that departed “on or after March 3.”
The (DOT)’s Aviation enforcement Office said Xtra Airways (CIN) violated regulations that require carriers to be paid prior to operating a public charter flight and prohibiting the cancellation of such flights less than <10 days prior to their scheduled departure times.
Passengers were unable to receive the service they paid Direct Air (MBD) for when (CIN) refused to honor the scheduled flights for Direct Air (MBD). “Airline passengers should not have to worry about last-minute charter flight cancellations or being stranded in the middle of their trips,” said USA Transportation Secretary, Ray LaHood. “Our rules were put into place to protect passengers’ rights, and we will continue to take enforcement action against airlines and charter operators when they violate those rules.”
The (DOT) issued a similar fine in July to World Atlantic Airlines (WLL) for payment disputes with Direct Air (MBD).
Xtra Airways (CIN) is not hiring pilots (flight crew).

November 2012: Cal Jet Air, operated by XTRA Airways (CIN), will offer 9X-weekly service to Mazatlan from Houston, San Antonio, Denver, Los Angeles and Oakland, California between January 9 - April 9.
December 2012: The USA Department of Transportation issued a $50,000 penalty to Vision Airlines (VIS) as the result of the sudden shutdown of public charter operator Direct Air (MBD) in March.
Direct Air (MBD)’s shutdown forced several of the carriers it had charter agreements with to cancel the remaining flights they were scheduled to fly. Vision Airlines (VIS) violated the department’s regulations prohibiting the cancellation of public charter flights less than 10 days before their scheduled departure.
(VIS) is the third carrier to receive a fine related to the shutdown of DirectAir (MBD). Xtra Airways (CIN) and World Atlantic Airline (WLL) received similar fines early this year, and the department recently introduced new rules regulating public charter flights in November.
January 2013: Cal Jet Air launched services to a new winter sun destination, Mazatlán (MZT) in Mexico from five USA cities.
