August 2012: Ryan International Airlines (RYN) has replaced its single A330-343E (1231, N771RD) previously sub-leased from Virgin Atlantic Airways (VAA) by a first ex-Atlasjet Airlines (ABE) A330-200 (343, N772RD).

January 2013: Filed for bankruptcy and ceased aviation operations.

February 2014: A Nevada-based company is seeking to relaunch operations of defunct Ryan International Airlines (RYN), to be rebranded as "American West Jets."

American West Jets (AWJ) was awarded the ownership of Ryan International in a Nevada bankruptcy hearing on February 11th. (AWJ) is now seeking the USA Department of Transportation (DOT) to review an order it issued before the hearing, revoking (RYN)'s certificate authority (AOC) to operate flights.

The rebranded carrier plans to operate point-to-point flights from Las Vegas to San Bernardino in California and Cabo San Lucas in Mexico, according to a presentation filed by (AWJ) with the (DOT). It will fly thrice weekly on each route and will operate "chronologically older" Boeing 747-400s and Lockheed L-1011 TriStars, the presentation described. The L-1011s will be configured with 250 seats and the 747s with up to 460 seats, said the presentation.

The airplanes would be operated at a "very low cycle", stated (AWJ). This would allow the company to "retain earnings fast enough to be able to replace these airplanes in two-three years with next-generation Boeing wide body 777s," it added.

Drex Hansen, was listed as (CEO) of (AWJ) on the (DOT) filing.

Ryan International (RYN) ceased operations in January 2013 after it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Based in Rockford (Illinois), it had previously operated cargo and chartered passenger flights.

The airline was subsequently purchased by AJet Holdings in February 2013. But in October 2013, one of AJet's creditors initiated an involuntary Chapter 7 bankruptcy proceeding against AJet. AJet failed to respond to the bankruptcy case, and a trustee was then appointed for AJet's assets.

In January, the trustee said it had negotiated an agreement with People Express Airlines for the carrier to buy Ryan International (RYN)'s stock, according to filings. By that time, (RYN)'s certificate authority to operate flights was in danger of being revoked as the airline had been dormant.

AJet's trustee requested for the (DOT) to extend the revocation for dormancy provision for six months to allow it to secure bankruptcy court approval and to finalize the sale to People Express. However, this was denied by the (DOT) in an order issued on February 11th. The (DOT) revoked (RYN)'s certificate authority, putting an end to the sale of the airline to People Express.

(AWJ) says it was awarded the ownership of Ryan International (RYN) in a bankruptcy court hearing that very day, which took place less than an hour after the (DOT) order was issued. In its petition seeking for a review of the (DOT) order, (AWJ) says Hansen was told by a (DOT) official on January 15th that the (DOT) would wait for the nomination of a bidder for Ryan International (RYN) by the Nevada bankruptcy court. "The failure by the (DOT) to take into account this short-term pending action makes the finding of fact erroneous," said (AWJ) in its petition.
