DULLES, VA: The communications surrounding the bankruptcy of Independence Air were the last tasks the in-house team handled before their jobs ceased to exist last week.

Valerie Wunder, Independence's manager of media, said the company did not enlist an outside financial communications firm for last week's bankruptcy announcement.

Independence has worked with Wexler & Walker for public affairs issues. The agency did not return a call for comment.

Wunder said the company sent out letters to employees and posted information for customers on its website on the Sunday before last week's abrupt announcement.

Asked about the future of Independence's two-person communications staff, Wunder said, "We're looking for jobs."
