IBJ reporter Chris Oâ??Malley reported last weekend that ATA Airlinesâ?? parent company has quietly moved its headquarters to Peachtree City, Ga. Global Aero Logistics no longer flies out of Indianapolis International Airport, but it has other operations here that employ more than 600.

For now, the only executive working from the Atlanta-area headquarters is CEO Subodh Karnik. Is the handwriting on the wall for an eventual full departure?
  • The article said it was unlikely, so I'm going to say No.
  • The word from inside the company is ATA will remain in Indy to schedule pilots, accounting, and customer service. But the main decision-making will be done in Atlanta. They will never return here to fly and run gates. it will be interesting to see what our newly elected, no answer, clueless, Mayor Braindead will try to do to encourage more options for air travel in Indianapolis.
  • The writing is on the wall......good by ATA
