Providencial was a Rhode Island based leisure carrier founded in 2007. It was initially a success, becoming one of the largest airlines to operate out of Providence T.F. Green International Airport. However, when the recession hit, leisure travel quickly declined, and the airline soon went into financial turmoil. In 2010, the airline was merged into New England Airlines, and its fleet of 15 Boeing 737-800s were all transferred into the NEA fleet. Today, NEA's N399PD, a former Providecial aircraft, still wears a throwback livery to this short-lived airline.
N385PD, Boeing 737-86A "Katelyn", delivered to Yangtze Airlines as B-5410 "Zhoushan" in 2004, sold to Providencial in 2007, transferred to New England Airlines in 2010.
