  • Hoeksema: defending the fortress at Midwest

    News | 26 Feb 2007 15:32 | David Field

    <P><STRONG>Tim Hoeksema, chairman of Midwest Air Group, has his hands full fighting off a takeover bid from AirTran Airways. He explains to Airline Business Americas editor David Field why he wants his Milwaukee-based carrier to remain independent </STRONG></P> <P>Build a better mousetrap, and people will beat a path to your door. That’s the old saying in marketing and retailing, but it’s under test in US airlines right now. Midwest Airlines has based its entire business model on offering a better mousetrap, in the form of high-touch service, all-leather two-by-two seats on most flights, and its trademark chocolate-chip cookies baked on board. The carrier operates as Midwest Airlines, the former Midwest Express, and regional carrier Midwest Connect. Its approach, dubbed “the best care in the air”, has worked well enough to gain the Milwaukee-based airline a strong following among business travellers through the Midwest. </P> <P>And it’s also gotten the carrier a hostile takeover offerhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Hoeksema-defending-the-fortress-at-Midwest-212358/
