Midwest Airlines is to launch nonstop service between Kansas City and both Columbus, Ohio and New Orleans.
“Kansas City remains an important part of our expanding network,” said Greg Aretakis, the airline’s vice-president of revenue production. “We’re pleased to provide our loyal Kansas City customers even more opportunity to fly Midwest Airlines.”
The nonstop service to Columbus begins on 3 May 2010, while the service to New Orleans starts on 20 May. Together with sister carrier Frontier Airlines, customers can now choose from 70 destinations throughout the branded network of parent company Republic Airways including 13 destinations served nonstop from Kansas City.
The service to Columbus will use 99-seat Embraer 190s, while the New Orleans flights will be operated with 76-seat Embraer 170s. Both aircraft feature an all-leather seating configuration, buy-onboard meals and snacks, and complimentary baked-onboard chocolate chip cookies.
