In 1994, AirTran Holdings purchased Conquest Sun Airlines, a start-up 737 operator, and re-branded the carrier as "AirTran Airways" (CQT). In 1995, (CQT) was spunoff by Mesaba Airlines and formed its own independent holding company named Airways Corporation ValuJet Inc, the holding company for ValuJet Airlines (VAU), acquired Airways Corporation. In September 1997, ValuJet Airlines was rebranded as AirTran Airlines (CQT). In the summer of 1998, the two airlines merged under the same (FAA) Air Operator Certificate (AOC) and the "AirTran Airways" (CQT) name survived.
