BAe 146 operator Air Wisconsin has finalized a contracts to continue providing flight services for United Express. Air Wisconsin has been flying under the United Express since 1985. The airline currently operates 17 BAe 146s on United Express’ behalf (12 series 200s and 5 series 300s), in addition to a large fleet of CRJs. Under the new contract, the relationship with United is extended for a further eleven years. It provides for the airline to continue operating its 17 BAe 146s on United Express services through 2005 and at least 10 of them beyond that date. The 146 is indispensable to Air Wisconsin’s United Express operation as it is the only jet allowed to fly into the ski resort at Aspen — a lucrative destination during the winter.
