Northern Illinois Columnists Recommend Mitchell

"Choose the 'third airport'...Milwaukee's airport is already there and growing," states columnist Howard A. Learner, executive director of the Environmental Law and Policy Center, in the most recent issue of Crain's Chicago Business. In the article, "Let's face reality: We need regional airport coordination," Learner references Mitchell Airport's growth and highlights the airport as a "key opportunity."

Echoing that sentiment, Libertyville Review columnist Chuck Wenk spotlights the ease of traveling from MKE as compared to Chicago's Midway:

"There's no reason for folks from the North Shore to go to Midway, when instead you can drive to Milwaukee, park your car for a reasonable rate and fly on any of the major airlines based at General Mitchell Field," Wenk stated.

We couldn't agree with them more; Milwaukee is the smarter departure for northern Illinois passengers!
