New Flower Import Operation To Get Underway Friday At MidAmerica

MASCOUTAH — The three-month hiatus that stalled MidAmerica St. Louis
Airports flower import business is set to end at 6 a.m. Friday, when a Boeing
757 cargo plane of roses and carnations lands after a 2,530-mile flight from
Bogota, Colombia.

The landing represents a “reboot” for the flower flight program under a new
management operation being headed by John Baisch, president of Baisch & Skinner,
a St. Louis-based flower wholesaler.

Baisch said he is confident the “reboot” has a strong chance for success because
of MidAmericas location in the nations geographic center and far away from the
traffic tie-ups that plague bigger airports, such as OHare in Chicago, he said.
