SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Just months after a plane crash kills a Utah man and 12 others -- Corporate Airlines has changed its name.

On Wednesday, the Nashville-based company announced the name change to "RegionsAir."

Airline officials say the name change is a result to "eliminate confusion for vendors and customers."

However, lawyers for one of the crash victims questions their reasoning. He said lawsuits against the airline have raised many questions about their safety.

In October, Corporate Airlines Flight 5966 crashed near Kirksville, Missouri.

Clark Ator of Alpine was among the 13 killed in the crash. Two people from Utah were the only survivors.
