The one-year, renewable, 1,500-square-foot lease is for the entire building located at 6083 South Jasper Avenue in the MKE Regional Business Park, which was formerly home to the 440th Air Force Reserve Station.

According to Aretakis, there has been an outpouring of support for re-establishing Midwest Express Airlines from around the country, including outreach from former employees, business partners and frequent flyers.
