Midwest Airlines said today that it is further expanding its codeshare program with Frontier Airlines to include Kansas City service and connecting itineraries.
Midwest customers can now purchase tickets under the Midwest “YX” code for travel beginning Feb. 16, 2010 on Frontier’s nonstop flights between Kansas City and Denver. Similarly, Frontier’s “F9” code has been placed on eight nonstop Midwest destinations out of Kansas City Additionally, effective immediately, Midwest and Frontier customers can book connecting codeshare itineraries through Denver, Kansas City and Milwaukee.
In the coming months, Frontier’s international routes will also be added to the codeshare, as will double-connect itineraries. At that time, customers of both airlines will have full access to the combined Midwest and Frontier route networks.
Our customers have told us that their top priority is flexible and convenient schedules,” said Greg Aretakis, vice president of Revenue Production. “We already offer the most nonstop service and best schedule to major destinations from Milwaukee and Kansas City; this expansion of our codeshare is one more way we are providing our customers with more choices to help them plan their travels.”
Midwest’s reciprocal frequent flyer agreement with Frontier allows members of the Midwest Miles and the Frontier Early Returns programs to earn and redeem miles on either airline.
