MIDWEST EXPRESS ADDS AIRCRAFT, EXPANDS SERVICE
MIDWEST EXPRESS ADDS AIRCRAFT, EXPANDS SERVICE MILWAUKEE, Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Midwest Express Airlines today
announced it has purchased an additional aircraft and will expand its winter service to Tampa, Fla., and its service to New York beginning Feb. 1, 1992; and its service to Boston beginning April 27, 1992.
According to Timothy E. Hoeksema, president of Midwest Express Airlines, the McDonnell Douglas DC-9-30 aircraft was purchased from Midway Airlines prior to its termination of service last week. The new service will consist of one daily roundtrip flight between Milwaukee and Tampa every day during the winter season, the planned addition of a fourth roundtrip flight between Milwaukee and New York/LaGuardia each business day, and the addition of a third roundtrip flight between Milwaukee and Boston each business day beginning April 27. The expansion also includes the inauguration of Skyway Airlines service between Milwaukee and Detroit City Airport. Skyway will operate four roundtrips each business day between the two cities. Midwest Express service between Milwaukee and Detroit Metropolitan Airport will be discontinued effective Feb. 1. "This expansion is in direct response to our customers' requests for increased service to some of our most popular destinations," Hoeksema said. "Now travelers will have more available flights to Tampa and Boston, a morning departure from New York to Milwaukee and the option of Skyway Airlines service to convenient Detroit City Airport, which is just minutes from the downtown business center." Hoeksema emphasized the need for controlled growth even during difficult economic times, saying, "The continued success of Midwest Express depends on our ability to respond to our customers' needs. This expansion is further evidence of that responsiveness." Midwest Express Airlines is a wholly-owned subsidiary of K-C Aviation, which, in turn, is a subsidiary of Kimberly-Clark Corp. (NYSE: KMB). Midwest Express currently has 979 employees, over 800 of those located at its Milwaukee hub. Operating since June 1984, Midwest Express currently has a fleet of 14 jet aircraft, which operate to 19 cities throughout the United States.
