Midwest Airlines to cut flights at CWA


by Diana Normand

MOSINEE (WAOW) -- The rising price of fuel isn't just affecting our wallets.

Airlines across the nation, including one right here in our area, are also feeling the pinch.

Midwest Airlines plans to cut flights out of the Central Wisconsin Airport starting early September.

This move will effect a dozen or more workers at CWA.

In total, Midwest plans to cut at least 12-hundred workers.

CWA leaders say this will have a direct impact on the airport, mainly in their budget.

Airport manager, Tony Yaron says, "hope there are no other announcements by other airlines along these lines. The first thing we are going to have to do is deal with that loss of revenue and cut our expenses commensurably."

CWA will lose close to 200-thousand dollars a year because of the cut.

And he says other small airlines won't feel relief.. until fuel costs go down.
