Mitchell Memo March 2014

Fly Frontier to New Jersey’s Capital City

Frontier Airlines will begin nonstop flights from Milwaukee to Trenton, New Jersey beginning June 14.  Trenton is located between Philadelphia and Newark.  The service will be operated Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on Airbus A319 aircraft.  Introductory fares start as low as $69 each way, and the best place to book is FlyFrontier.com.  Frontier also serves Denver and Cancun nonstop from MKE.

American and US Airways Tie the Knot

As part of their merger, American Airlines and US Airways have combined their networks. That means you can book tickets for either airline at AA.com or USAirways.com and travel seamlessly on one itinerary.  The combined airline has nonstop routes from Milwaukee to Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Philadelphia, and Phoenix.  Be sure to check your gate assignment when flying out or meeting arriving passengers, as the airlines are currently operating from separate concourses.

More Time to Park for FREE!

Are you picking up passengers at MKE?  Avoid circling the airport and dealing with construction traffic.  Use our convenient free parking options to avoid traffic backups near the Baggage Claim construction project.  Free parking in the Hourly garage and Surface lot has been extended from 30 minutes to one hour!

Look at the Way you Book!

That’s the title of our Milwaukee-area advertising campaign, which aims to remind travelers that websites like Expedia, Travelocity, Orbitz, etc. don’t display many of the nonstop routes offered from MKE.  Southwest Airlines offers the most nonstop destinations from Milwaukee, yet their flights can only be found on Southwest.com.  When you plan your next trip, be sure to check out the list of nonstop cities, and all the airlines that serve them, on MitchellAirport.com.

Funjet Launches MKE Top Travel Deals

This is turning out to be the never-ending winter. But, we're helping you warm up and forget about snow.  Funjet Vacations offers nonstop charter service from Milwaukee to six destinations in Mexico and the Caribbean.  Click here to see Funjet's Top Travel Deals from MKE.

TSA Pre✓™ Enrollment Center Opens

Enrolling in the TSA Pre✓™ expedited screening program just got easier.  The TSA recently opened an enrollment center at 131 W. Layton Avenue near Mitchell Airport.  Opt in and speed up your security screening process at 117 airports nationwide.  MKE has TSA Pre✓™ lanes on all three concourses.

New Miller Brewhouse Now Open

The remodeled Miller Brewhouse is now open in Mitchell Airport’s Concession Mall.  The revamped restaurant has an exciting new look and features a much larger bar area.  The Miller Brewhouse was closed for remodeling since late last year.

Milwaukee Students Adopt-A-Pilot

Southwest Airlines kicked off its 2014 Adopt-A-Pilot program by visiting Milwaukee Public School students to give them insight into aviation careers and the math and science that goes into every flight.  Click here to watch the Fox 6 footage from Discovery World!

Kids Love our Upgraded Play Areas

Be sure to check out our newly-remodeled Children’s Play Areas.  With colorful, padded flooring and play equipment, the play areas are a great option for families who have extra time to spend before boarding their flights.  The small slides, tunnels and airplanes are soft and safe for children of all ages.  The Children’s Play Areas, which are open to ticketed passengers at all times, are located beyond the security checkpoints of all three concourses.

The recipients of our February Customer Service Awards were Philip Gruntzel, Henry Williams and Alair Dreher of G2 Secure Staff.  Pictured here with G2 General Manager Rodney Zankl (left), Philip, Henry, and Alair were nominated by passengers who were impressed with the personalized assistance they received getting to/from their flights at Mitchell Airport.  Thanks for your outstanding customer service, gentlemen!
