MKE – Your Partner in Air Service Growth.



Named a “Top 10 State for Business” by Chief Executive Magazine, Wisconsin’s manufacturing roots run deep. Greater Milwaukee alone boasts over 52,000 businesses, providing more than 1 million jobs to its 2 million residents. The Milwaukee region is home to 48 Fortune/Forbes 500/1000 headquarters. Names like Harley-Davidson, Rockwell Automation, Jockey, SC Johnson, GE Healthcare, Miller Brewing, Fiserv, Manpower Group, Johnson Controls and Milwaukee Tool are local icons. Wisconsin sends about one million international air travelers per year throughout the globe, with the largest number flying to Europe. According to the Global Business Alliance, 762 international companies have operations in Wisconsin, employing nearly 128,000 workers. Among the larger international firms with North American headquarters or major operations in the Milwaukee area are Komatsu Mining, Haribo, Kikkoman, Fujifilm, ABB, Krones AG, Chr. Hansen, Metso Minerals, Nestle and Fiat.

Diverse and growing, Milwaukee is the 5th “up-and-coming” tech city in the U.S. according to Forbes. This is illustrated by the wealth of energy, power and control; internationally-recognized medical technology and biotech; water technology and research; and food and beverage production companies that choose to run their businesses in the region.




Wisconsin’s wealth of natural beauty, events and attractions makes it a highly-attractive leisure travel market. There were more than 100 million visitor trips to Wisconsin in 2021, with travelers taking the opportunity to experience all that our state has to offer year-round.  The Viking brand has elevated Great Lakes cruising to global appeal, with luxury ships traveling between Milwaukee and Toronto throughout the season. Golfers can play 10 public courses that are ranked in the U.S. Top 100, including courses that hosted the 2021 Ryder Cup and top PGA tournaments. Hikers will enjoy the beauty of the Ice Age Trail, with dells, bluffs and ravines offering breathtaking scenery throughout Wisconsin. The state’s 15,000 lakes provide endless swimming and boating fun. And Wisconsin Dells is the Waterpark Capital of the World! Winter brings skiing, boarding, and snowmobiling; Wisconsin may not have the high peaks of the West, but does have the third most ski resorts — as many as Colorado and more than California!  The EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin’s NBA, NFL and MLB sports teams, and the IndyCar and NASCAR events on Wisconsin’s iconic tracks round out some of our major tourism draws.
