About Midway Airlines Corporation
Founded in 1993, Midway Airlines was an airline with 200 daily flights serving passengers flying between the Northeast and Southeast of the United States. Midway moved from Chicago to North Carolina in 1995. Midway competed in the low-fare flight market with other carriers, such as Southwest Airlines and AirTran Airways. Initially flying only Fokker 100 aircrafts, the company eventually relied on the higher seating capacity of their Boeing 737-700s. The drop in business travel combined with reduced air traffic growth and high fuel cost was what Midway claimed to hurt the company the most. At its height, the company employed over 1,700 people and had flights to 35 cities in 19 states.
Midway Airlines also operated under the trade name Jet Express.
The former headquarters of Midway Airlines was located in Morrisville, NC.
