For those of us living and working in the Milwaukee region it comes as no surprise that Chicagoans are starting to take notice of General Mitchell International Airport. Underscoring that fact is the following February 10th story from USA Today: Milwaukee airport wants to be considered Chicago’s third one.
The story is filled with a number of interesting and important quotes such as "Mitchell has emerged as one of the USA’s fastest-growing airports…" Midwest Airlines’ Jim Reichart states that the upscale business travelers from northern Illinois recognize that traveling out of Milwaukee "is really just as easy as going to O’Hare."
Kit Mueller, a technology consultant who lives in Chicago’s Loop, admits that "I’ve become somewhat the evangelist of late" with respect to flying out of Milwaukee.
I thought this would be of interest to those thinking of Relocating to the Milwaukee area. Milwaukee is a "Great Place on a Great Lake. I wish they still used that slogan!
