MILWAUKEE, WI — Midwest Express could make its return to Milwaukee's Mitchell International Airport after the company signed an agreement with a major partner in order to begin non-stop flight service from Midwest Express' home base at Milwaukee's Mitchell International Airport.
"This agreement with Elite Airways is a key step to bringing much-needed nonstop service back to Milwaukee," said Greg Aretakis, president of Midwest Express. "We identified Elite Airways as a well-suited partner due to its extensive operating experience, high-quality customer service approach, and exemplary safety record. By partnering with Elite, we expedite bringing our service to the market while we pursue federal licenses required to operate independently."
Officials said Elite Airways will operate the initial aircraft and provide flight crews and maintenance service for Midwest Express. According to a Milwaukee Business Journal report, the airline known for its slogan, "Best Care In The Air," could return as early as this year.
Midwest Express will establish its own reservations system, customer service operations and in-flight amenities to support the new flights. All public-facing customer interaction, including the branding on the planes, will be Midwest Express, company officials said.
