HISTORY: NORTH CENTRAL AIRLINES was a regional airline in the midwestern United States. Founded as Wisconsin Central Airlines in 1944 in Clintonville, Wisconsin, the company moved to Madison in 1947. In 1952 the airline moved their headquarters from Wisconsin to Minneapolis, Minnesota, and that December their name became North Central Airlines. Following a merger with Southern Airways in 1979, North Central became Republic Airlines, which merged into Northwest Airlines in 1986.
