The Midwest Express comeback story cleared another hurdle this week as the carrier announced it has secured aircraft to (re)launch flights. The company will contract with Elite Airways to operate its aircraft.
This is not quite a crowdfunding play for an upstart airline, but it is close. Midwest Express continues it comeback run and consumers can help thanks to a new online shop the company set up. It is unlikely the margins on logoed golf balls and pint glasses will help close the gap on the $6-8 million dollars the company is seeking to raise for its next funding round, but at least there’s a guarantee that shoppers will get something for the spend.
