Eastern Airlines moves to the West

The Economic Development Corporation of Kansas City, MO (EDCKC) and its partners have announced that Eastern Airlines has selected Kansas City, MO, for its new headquarters. The company has had a presence in Kansas City since 2021, when it purchased an MRO facility, Alta Aero Technic, and formed a passenger-to-freighter design company called Foxtrot Aero.


With this move, the airline consolidates all its operations near the Kansas City International Airport (MCI). The relocation from Wayne, PA to Kansas City took place at the end of 2023 and was a USD 4.7 million capital investment. In mid-January 2024, Eastern acquired Hillwood Airways and its fleet of passenger and cargo Boeing 737s, adding to its own fleet of B767 and B777 aircraft. (ah)
