Milwaukee loses Midwest Airlines headquarters, might get cheaper air fares
Milwaukee is about to lose one of its local corporate headquarters but it might get cheaper air fares in return.
That's how some analysts view the upcoming of sale of Milwaukee's Midwest Airlines to Republic Airways of Indianapolis.
Republic says it will restore flights that Midwest dropped last year when it cut its service by 40 percent.
At the same time, Southwest Airlines is launching a dozen daily flights in November in its first presence in Milwaukee.
