Mesa to offer expanded airline services out of Joplin

On Wednesday, Mesa Airlines announced it will provide more services out of the Joplin Airport and other airports it serves.

According to an article in the Grand Island, Nebraska, Independent, Mesa announced a codeshare agreement with Midwest Airlines:

The agreement means that passengers from Grand Island will be able to buy a single ticket to fly from Grand Island into Kansas City, Mo., to connect with Midwest's 44 daily departures there.

Those departures include 17 nonstop destinations to places such as Washington, D.C.-National, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, New York-LaGuardia and Los Angeles.

"With the addition of the Midwest Airlines codeshare ... we now offer not only great local fares to Kansas City but great new connecting opportunities with Midwest Airlines," Mesa spokesman Jeffrey Hartz said.

The agreement affects not only the Mesa flights from Grand Island but also those from Columbia/Jefferson City, Mo.; Joplin, Mo.; Kirksville, Mo.; McCook; and Omaha.
