Midwest Express files with SEC in first step toward official comeback

MILWAUKEE, Wis. -- Midwest Airlines has taken the first step in their potential comeback. 

According to our partners at the Milwaukee Business Journal, a group of industry executives filed a private stock offering with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission last week that marks the "first step in the process to bring back Midwest Express Airlines," according to Christine Williams, who is handling marketing and communications for the group.

The group has no set timeline for returning Midwest Express to General Mitchell International Airport, but recently completed a round of fundraising, which the filing valued at $750,000, and plans to begin another one soon. 

The airline merged with Frontier in 2010. 

Many former Midwest Express customers remember fondly the perks the airline provided, such as fresh, warm cookies on the plane.
