MILWAUKEE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Midwest Airlines has launched a codeshare program with Frontier Airlines that provides Midwest customers with service to destinations in the Rocky Mountain region. Additionally, a new reciprocal frequent flyer agreement allows members of the Midwest Miles and Frontier Early Returns programs to earn and redeem miles on either airline.

Midwest’s “YX” code has been placed on Frontier flights, providing Midwest customers the ability to connect in Denver to Aspen, Colorado Springs and Durango, Colo.; Billings and Bozeman, Mont.; Albuquerque, N.M.; and Rapid City, S.D.

Similarly, Frontier’s “F9” code has been placed on Midwest flights, allowing Frontier customers to connect in Milwaukee to Midwest flights throughout the Ohio Valley and East Coast.

“This codeshare offers our hometown travelers convenient service to destinations in the Rocky Mountains,” said Greg Aretakis, Midwest’s vice president of Planning and Revenue Management. “Not only will they have the ease of booking their entire flight on a single ticket, they’ll be able to earn Midwest Miles for the entire flight, and also use their Midwest Miles to book award travel on Frontier. This is going to be very popular with our customers.”

“As we build this partnership with Midwest, our customers will see the benefit with more choices to more cities, with an emphasis on the same level of service they have come to expect with both airlines,” added Daniel M. Shurz, vice president of Strategy and Planning for Frontier.

Midwest Airlines features jet service throughout the United States, including Milwaukee’s most daily nonstop flights and best schedule to major destinations. Catering to business travelers and discerning leisure travelers, the airline earned its reputation as “The best care in the air” by providing passengers with impeccable service and onboard amenities at competitive fares. The airline currently operates 218 daily flights to 33 cities and employs 1,600 aviation professionals. Midwest Airlines is a wholly owned subsidiary of Indianapolis-based Republic Airways, and Republic expects to close on its purchase of Frontier Airlines on or before Oct. 1, 2009.
