MIDWAY ANNOUNCES NEW SERVICE, SUPER-LOW FARES; LAGUARDIA TO DENVER JUST $168 ONE-WAY

 NEW YORK, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Midway Airlines today announced it will expand operations on Jan. 17 with daily non-stop service from Chicago-Midway to Denver and Philadelphia, as well as service via Midway between LaGuardia and Denver and Philadelphia and Denver.
 Midway will inaugurate the new service with super-low promotional fares. One-way fares are just $75 from Midway to Philadelphia, $90 from Midway to Denver, $168 from LaGuardia to Denver and $149 from Philadelphia to Denver. Seats are limited, fares are non-refundable and must be purchased by Jan. 15 for travel through March 31. However, there is no Saturday night stay requirement.
 Midway will operate three daily non-stops in each direction between Midway Airport and Philadelphia and two daily non-stops in each direction between Midway Airport and Denver. Flights will depart Midway for Philadelphia at 6:45 a.m. and 2:15 and 7:20 p.m. and Philadelphia for Midway at 6:45 and 10:10 a.m. and 5:45 p.m. Departures from Midway to Denver will be at 8:15 a.m. and 2:05 p.m. and from Denver to Midway at 10:30 a.m. and 4:20 p.m.
 In addition, there will be two daily direct thru-flights in each direction between New York and Denver, leaving New York at 6:29 a.m. and noon and Denver at 10:30 a.m. and 4:20 p.m. There will also be daily connecting service between Philadelphia and Denver, departing Philadelphia at 6:45 a.m. and Denver at 10:30 a.m.
 "Our initial six weeks of operations have been extremely successful, with a load factor of 50 percent in December, far above our projections," Midway President Kenneth T. Carlson said. "This puts us in a solid position to expand along the lines we have planned.
 "We are confident that our full-amenity, business class service, combined with these super-low fares will get the new markets off to the strong start that will pave the way for our next round of expansion, in the very near future," he added.
 "Plus, I cannot think of a better gift to the ski-minded vacationers of New York, Philadelphia and Chicago than the fares we have announced today. It's the best way to go on a ski holiday that I know."
 One-way non-restricted fares are: Midway-Denver and Midway Philadelphia, $170, LaGuardia-Denver and Philadelphia-Denver, $350.
 This major service expansion, which coincides with the arrival of two more brand new Fokker-100 jets, comes just two months after Midway began operations.
