HONOLULU — It could have easily been a time of widespread panic, but when word came that Aloha Airlines had filed for bankruptcy and then abruptly announced that it was out of business, Aloha Airlines Federal Credit Union took an aggressive, proactive approach to reassure its members.

Aloha Airgroup, the parent company of Aloha Airlines Inc, closed shop on March 31, less than two weeks after filing for bankruptcy for the second time in three years. The shutdown of Aloha’s passenger operations will affect about 1,900 of its 3,500 employees. Aloha also announced that its air cargo and aviation services units will continue to operate as usual while the U.S. Bankruptcy Court seeks bids from potential buyers, according to a statement on the carrier’s Web site (www.alohaairlines.com). On March 27, Saltchuk Resources Inc. announced its intention to buy Aloha’s air cargo business. The carrier said United Airlines, its code-share partner, and other airlines were prepared to assist and accommodate Aloha’s passengers who had been inconvenienced.
