Airline services company Regional Elite closes its Roanoke location

Regional Elite, an airline services company, is closing its Roanoke location. 

About 38 employees will be affected, according to a notice filed last week by the company with the Virginia Workforce Network under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act. The WARN website says the cuts will take effect Oct. 30.

Calls to Regional Elite's headquarters in Minneapolis and its Roanoke location were not returned Wednesday.

Regional Elite, a Delta Air Lines subsidiary that provides ground handling and customer service for regional carrier flights, is shutting down, Delta announced this month.

According to an article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, most of Regional Elite's 4,000 employees are expected to get jobs with a second subsidiary.

A phone recording at the company's Roanoke location says it provides services to Delta and United Airlines.

Roanoke Regional Airport spokewoman Sherry Wallace said passengers wouldn't notice any changes.
