Midwest Airlines to Add New Seasonal Service

Midwest Airlines today announced it will expand its California service
with new seasonal service between Milwaukee and San Francisco and the
addition of seasonal service to its current Milwaukee-Los Angeles schedule.
The airline will add nonstop service between Milwaukee and San Francisco
beginning May 9 and continuing through January 2, 2005. The flights will
be offered every evening except Saturdays. Additionally, existing daily
service between Milwaukee and Los Angeles will be expanded with the
addition of flights on Thursday and Friday evenings between June 1 and
September 3.

The new flights in both markets will be operated as Midwest Airlines Saver
Service, which features low-fare service on primarily leisure routes.
Saver’s MD-80 fleet is configured with two-by-three seating that offers
significantly more legroom than other low-fare carriers. Onboard service
includes complimentary soft drinks, packaged snacks and baked-onboard
chocolate chip cookies on most flights, with buy-onboard meals available
for purchase.

Service to both cities is in addition to previously announced and existing
Midwest Airlines service to both cities. The airline will operate one-stop
Signature Service between Milwaukee and San Francisco beginning May 1; it
already offers daily Saver Service between Milwaukee and Los Angeles—
including evening flights on weekends.

“The new service to San Francisco and Los Angeles expands Midwest’s
schedule to California during the most popular travel months,” explained
Randall K. Smith, vice president of sales and distribution. “We’re always
pleased to offer our customers additional choices to their favorite

Schedules, including a downloadable timetable, and fares for Midwest’s
Milwaukee-San Francisco and Milwaukee-Los Angeles service are available at .


Midwest Airlines features nonstop jet service to major destinations
throughout the United States. Skyway Airlines, Inc.—its wholly owned
subsidiary—operates as Midwest Connect, which offers connections to
Midwest Airlines as well as point-to-point service between select markets
on regional jet and turboprop aircraft. Together, the airlines offer
service to 50 cities. More information is available at .
