Anyone Know Air Wisconsin Is Hiring At IPT

Fri Sep 21, 2012 10:35 pm

I thought Piedmont airlines handles all the flights at IPT? Anyone know why Air Wisconsin would be hiring there. Are they going to start serving IPT with CRJ's? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!!!!

Air Wisconsin recently won the Ground Handling contract for 3 US stations... IPT, HHH, and HTS.

They are hiring in all 3 cities.

Give it 6 months and it will be Piedmont running the operations again. Remember you get what you pay for, in this case the bottom feeders won these cities.

They did the same thing to a couple of other stations last year and it will happen to a few more next year. Anything to keep wages as low as possible.

ZW runs a great operation for UAX. In fact, the only reason ZW lost a bunch of their stations with UA was due to the high seniority in those cities. It's a fact of life for Ground Handlers.

It's a 2-3 year contract with US, so we'll see what happens.
