OneJet Service between Milwaukee and Indianapolis to Begin April 6th
March 18, 2015
Indianapolis - OneJet today announces nonstop service between Milwaukee and Indianapolis. Flights will be offered Monday through Thursday, featuring one hour gate-to-gate service, TSA precheck access for eligible customers, expedited boarding, and complimentary on board amenities.
Service to Indianapolis begins on April 6th, with tickets now on sale via select corporate and online retailers, including American Express Global Business Travel and Expedia. Inventory will be limited during the introductory period.
The Hawker 400 service will be operated by OneJet’s regional operating partner, Pentastar Aviation.
Today’s announcement represents the culmination of a multi-year, national scale initiative to introduce demand responsive transportation networks within the eastern U.S. Such networks can sustainably provide consumers increased access to nonstop travel options, at relatively low cost. The opening of OneJet Service between Milwaukee and Indianapolis is the first step in a multi-phase roll out of the program from Indianapolis over the coming months.
Former U.S. Deputy Secretary of Transportation John Porcari, a senior advisor to the OneJet program, stated: “This has been a multi-faceted effort incorporating leadership from across the transportation industry, including former senior leadership from the U.S. major airlines, the U.S. Department of Transportation, leading aircraft manufacturers, and TSA. As OneJet Service is gradually introduced, communities such as Indianapolis and Milwaukee will see increased nonstop connectivity and improved travel options.”
John Pistole, the recently retired head of the Transportation Security Administration, added: “OneJet Service will deliver a truly innovative and beneficial service enhancement for travelers, leveraging our transportation system’s existing operational capabilities to create increased nonstop accessibility.”
Lesley Conzelman, Senior Vice President, Sales and Distribution, for the OneJet program, stated: “This service will deliver a new level of simplicity and convenience for regional business travelers, with nonstop travel options easily accessible via existing booking tools and point of sale.” OneJet corporate retail partners include the nation’s largest corporate travel managers, including American Express Global Business Travel, Carlson Wagonlit Travel, and BCD Travel. “We look forward to continuing to work with our distribution partners to ensure OneJet Service is easily available to travelers as the program rolls out over the coming two to three years.”
Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele concluded: “The selection of Milwaukee as an inaugural market for OneJet Service is exciting news for travelers across the region who are continuing to see new and expanded service at MKE. OneJet's innovative business model can provide significant convenience and time savings to travelers heading to Indianapolis. We are always looking for more options for those who travel out of Mitchell and when companies can successfully accomplish that, we're committed to helping them succeed and expand. We congratulate the OneJet program on its Milwaukee launch and look forward to seeing them expand service in the next few years."
