Green, OH: Bikers, cheese heads and beer lovers rejoice! SkyWest Airlines in partnership with AirTran Airways launched nonstop service today to Milwaukee's General Mitchell International Airport (MKE) from Akron-Canton Airport (CAK) this morning. To celebrate, the airport and Liberty Harley-Davidson threw a Harley-Davidson-themed party complete with motorcycles and a biker breakfast for passengers on the first flight.
Not only is Milwaukee home to Harley-Davidson, it is remarkably close to Northern Chicago, giving CAK passengers easy, affordable access to two great cities. The new flights also connect into AirTran Airways' growing hub at MKE, allowing for easy connections to great cities like Minneapolis/ St. Paul, Denver and Las Vegas.
"We are delighted to work in close partnership with SkyWest and AirTran Airways to launch new service to Milwaukee," said Rick McQueen, President & CEO. "The new flights provide important new options, low fares and excellent access to the Northern Chicago region from CAK. Needless to say, this is a wonderful way to kick off 2010."
"SkyWest Airlines, in partnership with AirTran Airways, is pleased to bring more quality, convenient service to Akron-Canton passengers," said Brandi Honey, SkyWest's manager
