Regionals safe despite Ansett collapse

Australia's regional carriers and former Ansett subsidiaries, Kendell Airlines, Hazelton, Aeropelican and SkyWest are under different administrators from Ansett and not affected by its woes.

However, Kendell says the perceived link to Ansett is affecting it negatively. The airline's SA sales manager Ian Campbell says that it's business as usual, with all bookings still guaranteed and being taken at Ansett's call centre. Campbell says that he wants to reassure consumers that Kendall is not changing its schedules.
