MidAmerica Airport to Become Hub

Mascoutah, IL – MidAmerica Airport in Mascoutah, Ill. might soon have another tenant. The airport's director told a St. Clair County Committee last night that Air Florida Airways wants to make MidAmerica its world headquarters and operational hub.

The company plans to offer passenger, charter, and cargo flights, with a start date of June First. The company is still buying airplanes for operations, but the county committee last night approved millions in tax breaks for Air Florida.
