Air Wisconsin leaves United Airlines for American Airlines

GREENVILLE – Air Wisconsin Airlines, based at the Appleton International Airport, has announced its departure from United Airlines for American Airlines starting in 2023.

“We look forward to exploring opportunities with American as we transition our fleet and help them continue strengthening their regional network and providing safe, reliable service,” Air Wisconsin said in a statement Tuesday.

The company said it’s “working on our transition plans, and we will provide more information as it becomes available.”

According to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the five-year agreement will provide up to 60 Bombardier CRJ200 regional jet aircraft for American, with most of those flights focusing on connecting customers to American’s Chicago O’Hare hub, with possible future expansion to other hubs.

Air Wisconsin’s flights, currently operating as United Express with United Airlines, will operate as American Eagle with American Airlines.
