is expected to move from Concourse E to Concourse D. The move will include a new, larger Delta SkyClub on Concourse D. Click here for a complete concourse map of MKE.
Packers players trade places
You’ll never guess who helped Southwest Airlines at MKE in November. Brad Jones and Jerel Worthy of the Green Bay Packers served as Southwest employees for a day! They helped guide a 737 aircraft into the gate, offload bags, and board passengers. Brad Jones got a laugh during the boarding process when he got on the microphone and said, “Anyone wearing Green Bay gear, please move to the front of the line!”

HMSHost helps Hurricane Sandy victims
It's always important to take time out to help those who are less fortunate. HMSHost, which operates a number of concessions within Mitchell Airport, held a lunch fundraiser in November to support victims of Hurricane Sandy. HMSHost matched the funds raised at MKE, bringing the total amount to $1,550, which was then donated to assist hurricane victims in New Jersey. HMSHost is also accepting donations for the Red Cross at all of its Mitchell Airport locations.
Getting into the holiday spirit
The sound of beautiful piano music fills the main concession mall at MKE this time of year. Our talented entertainers will continue to tickle the ivories through the spring break travel period in early April. Many of our pianists take requests, so stop by and say hi! Live piano music is another unique way that MKE makes your travel experience a little more pleasant. We hope you enjoy the music over the holidays!
