Air Wisconsin Airlines (Appleton, WI) is phasing down its contract as an American Eagle operator.
Air Wisconsin Airlines, founded in 1965, operates nearly 350 departures per day system-wide to 26 states and 3 Canadian provinces with American Airlines and United Airlines, serving nearly 6 million passengers per year.
Air Wisconsin will be exclusively flying under the United Express livery by March of 2018.
The fleet is actively being repainted into United Express colors.
On March 1, 2017, Air Wisconsin announced a new agreement with United Airlines to once again operate under the United Express banner.
Air Wisconsin became an American Eagle operator when US Airways was merged into American. Air Wisconsin had previously been an US Airways Express operator. The American contract is due to expire in March 2018.
The remaining American Eagle routes radiate from the Philadelphia hub. They will all be gone by March 2018.
Meanwhile the expanding United Express routes radiate from the Washington (Dulles) and Chicago (O’Hare) UA Hubs.
Air Wisconsin is reestablishing a familiar route this summer. Starting this summer on June 8, 2018 Air Wisconsin will operate a nonstop flight from Appleton to Denver for United Airlines.
