MILWAUKEE -- Plans could be underway to bring back the Milwaukee-based Midwest Express Airlines, known for the free cookies it served to each passenger.
According to the website flymidwestexpress.com, "Plans are underway to bring back the iconic Midwest Express Airlines.”
Curt Drumm, president of Lakeshore Aviation, is behind the the plans, according to TODAY'S TMJ4's partners at the Milwaukee Business Journal.
"Drumm's company, Lakeshore Aviation, is a fixed-based operator, or FBO. FBOs are typically private companies contracted to provide all the services of a public airport, including fueling, maintenance, rental, aircraft parking and other services," the Journal says.
The website says it is looking for investors and new team members and has a form on its website for interested parties. The website adds it will post its progress on bringing the Milwaukee-based airline back.
Midwest Airlines was founded in 1984 as “Midwest Express” and merged with Frontier Airlines in 2010 . The Midwest brand was discontinued in late 2011.
The Business Journal reports that it is unclear if Drumm is affiliated with anyone for the effort, or if it is conncted to Midwest Express' former owners. TODAY'S TMJ4 has reached out to Drumm and will update this story when we learn more.
