SWA Beefs Up Presence At Midway, NWA Increases Footprint at
Hoping to step in where
ATA has stumbled, two airlines -- one a legacy carrier and the
other a pioneering low-cost carrier, are increasing their presence
in the Midwest.
Southwest Airlines is expanding non-stop service from Chicago's
Midway to 13 cities, while Northwest is adding five flights in its
third expansion at Indianapolis International since July.
SWA CEO Gary Kelly said expansion at Midway is his airline's
"number one priority," according to the Chicago Tribune. He said
Southwest may look at buying up at least some of ATA's Midway gate
Right now, SWA has 19
gates at Midway, while ATA (now operated by AirTran) has 14.
"There is pent-up demand for these markets. We're adding seats
because Chicago can handle the additional capacity," said SWA
spokesman Ed Stewart, quoted in the Tribune.
Northwest Moves On Indianapolis
Not to be outdone in the
Midwest, Northwest Airlines Monday announced it would add five
flights to its schedule at Indianapolis International Airport.
That's the third time in four months NWA has beefed up its
footprint at Indy. If all goes according to Northwest's plan, the
carrier should base 44 flights out of Indy by February, surpassing
ATA's schedule of 39 daily flights.
Sunday, NWA added 19 flights at Indy.
