Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport has a significant impact on the state and local economies, as seen in a study that was released earlier this year.
Overall, annual passenger and air cargo activity at Mitchell generates roughly 26,038 jobs, $913.4 million of direct, induced and indirect personal income, $2.6 billion of business revenue, $95.3 million of state and local taxes, and $88.3 million of Federal aviation-specific taxes.
Yet this number could be higher, as the study shows that Wisconsin travelers are contributing more than $200 million annually to the Illinois economy by using Chicago airports.
So if you aren't flying from a Wisconsin airport, you aren't helping the Wisconsin economy.
With rapid business development in Southeast Wisconsin, it's necessary to continue MKE aviation facility improvements to accommodate additional passengers and cargo.
Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport is our front door, and its impact on the economic success of the County, State and our region is enormous. at Milwaukee, Wisconsin
