Local media reports that Frontier Airlines is planning to lay off 446 workers in Milwaukee in April. A notice filed with the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development says some 230 of these employees are flight crew members who will be reassigned to bases outside of Milwaukee. Frontier Airlines recently announced it is dropping nonstop service from Milwaukee to six cities, cutting the number of daily flights nearly in half. Effective in April, the airline will end direct flights to Grand Rapids, Dallas-Fort Worth, Kansas City, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Newark. Frontier’s daily departures will be reduced from 32 to 18.
