Midwest Airlines Increases Service Again

Airline Adds Flight Frequency to Five Key Destinations Beginning June 1

KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Kansas City-area travelers flying Midwest Airlines will soon benefit from added flight frequency to key destinations.

Five markets will benefit from the schedule additions, which are effective June 1:

— Kansas City-Boston, increasing to 2 roundtrip flights daily
— Kansas City-Los Angeles, increasing to 3 roundtrip flights each
— Kansas City-Milwaukee, increasing to 7 roundtrip flights each weekday
— Kansas City-New York La Guardia, increasing to 4 roundtrip flights
each weekday
— Kansas City-San Diego, increasing to 2 roundtrip flights daily

The increased frequency to Los Angeles and San Diego will be provided seasonally to address increased passenger demand during the summer months. In addition, service in some markets will be retimed to better accommodate the added frequency.

The new flights will operate as Midwest Airlines Signature Service, which provides travelers additional comfort and space. Midwest’s new Boeing 717 jet aircraft feature two-by-two seating, extra legroom, and newly designed Recaro seats with adjustable headrests and footrests. Onboard service includes complimentary soft drinks, packaged snacks and baked-onboard chocolate chip cookies, with the airline’s buy-onboard Best Care Cuisine available for purchase. DigEplayer portable inflight entertainment systems are offered for rent on select longer flights.

“We’re committed to providing Kansas City travelers with excellent service and convenient schedules,” said Scott R. Dickson, senior vice president and chief marketing officer. He pointed out that with the added service announced today, Midwest Airlines will offer 28 nonstop flights from Kansas City each weekday to 12 destinations nationwide. Midwest — which has been named Kansas City’s favorite airline and is consistently recognized as the best airline in the United States — is known for providing a superior, competitively priced product.

Midwest has steadily expanded its Kansas City service in recent years, resulting in significant gains in passenger market share — which increased to 9.7% in January 2006 from 6.2% in the same month a year earlier. Additionally, the airline is a strong supporter of numerous local civic, charitable and sporting events.
