Easy one-stop connections to Asia, Alaska, and the entire Pacific Northwest
MILWAUKEE (March 10, 2017) – Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele has announced that Delta Air Lines had a successful launch this morning of its new daily nonstop flight between Milwaukee County’s General Mitchell International Airport (MKE) and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
Delta and Mitchell Airport hosted a launch celebration in the gate area this morning, where each passenger received Seattle Space Needle-themed chocolates and a Mitchell Airport luggage tag commemorating the first flight.
“This new service to Delta’s fast-growing domestic and international hub at Seattle gives our travelers even more ways to travel to the Pacific Northwest, Alaska and beyond,” County Executive Abele said. “In addition, many Asian destinations like Japan, China, and South Korea are even easier to access with one simple connection in Seattle.”
The new flights are operated with 76-seat WiFi-equipped Embraer ERJ-175 aircraft featuring First Class, Delta Comfort, and Main Cabin seating. Delta SkyClub members and other eligible travelers can also access the Delta SkyClub on Concourse D.
Delta is the second largest carrier at MKE, with nonstop service from Milwaukee to Atlanta, Boston, Cancun, Cincinnati, Detroit, Minneapolis-St. Paul, New York LaGuardia, Orlando, and Seattle. Tickets for all routes are available for purchase at www.delta.com.
Mitchell Airport offers nonstop flights to 39 destinations coast-to-coast, and 160 international destinations are available from Milwaukee with just one connection. MKE is served by Alaska, Air Canada, American, Delta, Frontier, Norwegian (Apple Vacations and Funjet Vacations), OneJet, Southwest, United and Volaris.
General Mitchell International Airport is owned by Milwaukee County and operated by the Department of Transportation, Airport Division, under the policy direction of the Milwaukee County Executive and the County Board of Supervisors. The airport is entirely funded by user fees; no property tax dollars are used for the airport’s capital improvements or for its day-to-day operation.
