June 30, 2014 – Ultimate Air Shuttle will expand its public charter service at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) to include service to Chicago – Midway Airport. Ultimate Air will launch five-day-a-week service to Chicago from CVG on July 28, 2014. This is an addition to the four-day-a week service to New York City via Morristown, NJ.
Ultimate Air’s 30-seat Dornier 328 Jet will fly Monday through Friday from the CVG Administration Building, located west of the main terminal.
The introductory price for a round-trip ticket is $399. After 120 days, the cost of a round trip ticket will be $449. These ticket prices include all applicable taxes and fees. Round-trip tickets can be purchased at www.ultimateairshuttle.com, or by calling 800-437-3931, with 24-hour phone support.
“Many of our customers have requested service to Chicago from CVG,” said Rick Pawlak, managing director of Ultimate Air Shuttle. “CVG has proven to be a cost-effective airport for Ultimate Air and has a tremendous record when it comes to customer service and safety. We are committed to this community and CVG gives us a perfect opportunity to grow our business.”
Ultimate Air Shuttle will depart CVG at 10:20 a.m. Monday thru Friday and will offer an 8 a.m. departure from Midway to CVG each day.
For customers who need to do a day trip, Ultimate Air Shuttle also departs Lunken Airport at 7:30 a.m. to Chicago Midway, landing at 7:30 a.m. central and returns from Chicago Midway at 5:15 p.m., landing at Lunken Airport at 7:15 p.m.
Chicago’s Midway airport is a highly desired destination for our passengers which we don’t currently serve,” said Candace McGraw, chief executive officer of Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. “We are pleased to partner with Ultimate Air Shuttle to meet our passenger needs. Midway will become the 54th non-stop airport destination for CVG, more than any other airport in the tri-state region.
Wm. T. (Bill) Robinson, Kenton County Airport Board Chairman added, “This is a great day for CVG. Our business community wants to fly to Chicago Midway. Now, they have a convenient, cost effective option to fly to the Chicago area via Midway airport on Ultimate Air Shuttle.”
The CVG location for Ultimate Air Shuttle includes complimentary covered parking adjacent to the CVG Administration Building and quick boarding without filing through a Transportation Security Administration checkpoint. The Ultimate Air Shuttle Facility also includes comfortable leather furniture, free Wi-Fi, cable television and free refreshments.
Ultimate Air offers ground transportation between CVG, Fountain Square and Lunken Airport for those passengers who use both airports or want a downtown drop-off at no cost. The Mercedes Sprinter that will be used for this service is provided by Mercedes-Benz of Ft. Mitchell.
