MIDWAY AIRLINES FLIES AGAIN FROM DENVER, EXTENDS INAUGURAL FARES: $90 TO CHICAGO

 /ADVANCE/ DENVER, Jan. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Midway Airlines returned to Denver today, restoring its unique brand of value-priced business- class service to Chicago's convenient Midway Airport for the first time in over two years.
 The inauguration of service was marked by a ceremony attended by city and airport officials and Midway Airlines executives.
 Midway is initially serving Denver with two round-trips daily to Chicago, with direct thru-service to and from New York-LaGuardia. There will also be one daily round-trip connection to Philadelphia, the other new market Midway opened today.
 Flights depart Denver for Midway at 10:30 a.m. and 1:50 p.m., with thru-service to LaGuardia. Flights depart Midway for Denver at 8:15 a.m. and 2:05 p.m. The two daily direct thru-flights from LaGuardia depart at 6:20 a.m. and noon. The connecting flight from Philadelphia leaves there at 6:45 a.m.
 Midway also said today it is extending to Jan. 31 its super-low inaugural one-way fares of $90 to Chicago, $140 to Philadelphia and $168 to LaGuardia. Seats are limited, fares are non-refundable and must be purchased by Jan. 31, instead of Jan. 15, for travel through March 31. However, there is no Saturday night stay requirement.
 The new Midway resumed service on Nov. 15 -- two years after the original Midway ceased operations -- with six daily non-stops between Midway and LaGuardia airports. Since then it has seen revenue passenger load factors jump to 50% on the Midway-LaGuardia route, a number which is "virtually unprecedented for a start-up airline and vividly demonstrates the demand for a value-priced, business class of service out of convenient Midway Airport," Midway President Kenneth T. Carlson said.
 "We are confident that we will experience similar success and acceptance in Denver, paving the way for future growth to the level of frequency the Denver market -- and the new Denver airport -- demand and deserve.
