General Mitchell International Airport - MKE

Milwaukee, United States of America (US)

Getting around the airport

Two terminals

General Mitchell International Airport is five miles south of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

  • The airport has two passenger terminals: the two-level Main Terminal with Concourses C, D, and E and a small International Arrivals Terminal.
  • The Main Terminal’s lower level houses check-in counters for departures and baggage claim for arrivals. The upper level has restaurants and shopping in the Concession Mall and leads to the Concourse.
  • Each concourse has its own security checkpoint and there is no connection between them. If you are connecting between concourses you will have to go through security again.
  • The small International Arrivals terminal is northwest of the passenger terminal. A shuttle takes passengers to the Main Terminal for transfers. Arriving passengers can be picked up here.

Travelling between terminals

The terminals are connected by a free shuttle bus that also serves parking lots. The shuttle picks up passengers outside the main doors of the International Arrivals Building.
