Could they be buying the one at Midway?

Proposed discount airline will raise $100 million, officials say
November 06, 2003 5:03 PM
Imperial, Pennsylvania
One of two executives wanting to bring a low-cost airline to Pittsburgh International Airport says he and his partner expect to raise more than 100 million dollars.

The two also believe they'll get fast-track regulatory approvals and will have jets flying by June.

Although it generally takes about 18 months for the Federal Aviation Administration to approve a new airline's operating license, executive Travis Tanner says he and Edward Beauvais (boo-VAY') can get one sooner by acquiring another airline's license.

F-A-A officials say they've heard nothing about those plans since Tanner and Beauvais announced the new airline on October 14th.

Beauvais co-founded America West Airlines and served as its chairman from 1981 to 1992 -- a year after America West filed for bankruptcy. Beauvais left Western Pacific in 1996 and the airline liquidated in 1998 after filing for bankruptcy.

Maybe...but with Eddie's record with America West and Western Pacific, and over-capacity remaining in the industry, many wonder who'll be dumb enough to loan them $100 million....

Sorry, I misinterpreted the title of your post, as Beauvais is an airport in France which is served by Ryanair which is claimed to be 'near' Paris.

Like a fine wine, one gets better with age.
