Clear the checkpoint faster w/TSA Pre✓

Approximately 1,600 individuals signed up during our TSA Pre✓® Mobile Enrollment event in March.  TSA Pre✓® gives low-risk travelers five years of expedited security screening for just $85.  We are working to offer another TSA Pre✓® event later this year.  In the meantime, travelers can visit TSA's website to schedule an appointment at the downtown Milwaukee office.  International travelers are encouraged to apply for Global Entry, which includes expedited re-entry to the U.S. on international trips and includes all the benefits of TSA Pre✓®.  The cost is $100 for five years.

Our green efforts are LEED-Certified

Mitchell Airport's Baggage Claim Renovation Project recently received LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.  Our Baggage Claim is the first building owned by Milwaukee County to become LEED certified.  The newly-remodeled facility opened last summer and has since received many positive reviews from travelers and industry experts, touting its efficiency, straightforward design, ease of use, and faster baggage delivery. MKE's Baggage Claim was also named one of the Top 25 Projects by the Daily Reporter newspaper in Milwaukee!

Southwest gets a hand from the Brewers

Milwaukee Brewers baseball players Will Smith and Jeremy Jeffress, along with Bernie Brewer and the Klement's Racing Sausages, were on hand recently to trade places with Southwest Airlines employees!  They helped offload luggage and get passengers boarded for an on-time departure to Seattle.  Nice job, guys!

Ride-sharing has arrived at MKE

Ride-sharing services Uber and Lyft are now available to pick up passengers at MKE!  To access these services, please use the designated pick-up area located near Baggage Claim Carousel #2.  Use the exit marked "Doors to Ticketing."  Traditional taxicabs also remain available for passengers outside Baggage Claim Exit #3.

Celebrating more Honor Flights at MKE

So far this year, MKE has hosted Stars & Stripes Honor Flights in April, May and June!  This unique program allows World War II and Korean War veterans the opportunity to visit their memorials in Washington DC.  There is still time to register for the remaining flights in September and October.  Visit the Honor Flight website for more information.

We LUV our Southwest Airlines team!

MKE was recently named one of Southwest Airlines' Most Loved Stations for 2015!  This special recognition is a major accomplishment and serves as a testament to the hospitality of Southwest's MKE employees and the product they provide to Milwaukee customers.

Customer service is our core mission

Our Customer Service Award recipients for May were Moira from the USO Lounge and Justin from Majestic Terminal Services.  Both were nominated for going the extra mile and providing outstanding service to our customers.  When you receive great customer service at MKE, please let us know at  Our team goes the extra mile for MKE passengers every day!

Reducing our environmental footprint

MKE received a Recognition Award from the Wisconsin Partners for Clean Air for its voluntary efforts to improve air quality. We earned the award for a variety of initiatives, including electric vehicle charging stations, more fuel-efficient parking shuttles, new LED lighting in the terminal, better monitoring of energy usage, and HVAC upgrades. Nice job, MKE Airport team!
