Mitchell Airport Fares Among Lowest in the Nation

MKE Airfares Among Lowest in the Nation

By - Nov 27th, 2012 04:11 pm

A new study by the U.S. Department of Transportation shows fares at General Mitchell International Airport (MKE) are $57 less than the national average and lower than 84 of the nation’s 100 largest airports.

“People across the country are starting to realize what travelers in Wisconsin have known for years, that Milwaukee is one of the best and most affordable airports in the U.S.,” County Executive Chris Abele said. “Throughout the U.S., airlines are merging and there are more passengers on fewer flights. We are fortunate that two of the nation’s strongest airlines, Southwest and Delta, are increasing their presence at Mitchell International.”

With the busy holiday travel season upon us, this is especially good news for Chicago area travelers – average fares at O’Hare Airport are $65 more than MKE.

“Passengers can save a significant amount of money on airfare and parking by flying through Mitchell instead of O’Hare,” Abele said. “MKE is served by the five largest U.S. airlines – American, Delta, Southwest, United and US Airways – along with Frontier and Air Canada. Thanks to the strong commitment of our airline partners, passengers will find a flight to get them where they are going this holiday season.”
