For over 25 years Midwest Express Airlines was Milwaukee’s premier airline known for great service, leather seats and fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies. At its peak, Midwest flew nonstop to over 50 cities and was rated as one of the best airlines in the industry. The name and Milwaukee’s premium airline service were, sadly, both lost after an acquisition/merger following the recession of 2008.
Today, we are excited to be taking initial steps to bring Midwest Express Airlines back! Led by Greg Aretakis, aviation industry expert and former VP at Midwest Express, Midwest Express consists of a group of passionate supporters committed to bringing back our hometown airline. Our goal is to fund this airline locally, which will ensure a long-term commitment to growing and keeping this service in Milwaukee. We thank our fellow Midwest Express supporters and are offering up “ME” apparel and other logo items to help raise awareness and excitement as we begin ramping up.
Your support is appreciated and we hope to be breaking a cookie together with you soon!
Note that although in the early stages of development, Midwest Express is actively raising capital and assessing routes. We thank you for your interest and support!
