The breakfast served was not as good as we expected. Salami and cheese is not my idea of breakfast.

Sep 17, 2019

Everything was good except the price

Sep 12, 2019

This has nothing to do with Frontier specifically, but you should know if you have a redeye flight in the wee hours of the morning, they wii actually kick you out of the gate area somewhere after midnight and you have to go thu security again at 3:45 am when they reopen the area. (MKE airport)

Free bag, free snack, great flight and times, nonstop, free seat

Aug 19, 2019

Staff and plane were good. Everything else had a fee, even the on flight beverage or snack.

Jul 30, 2019

Disappointed that everything on flight was charged for. Did not know that I could bring my own food and beverage on board.

Dec 10, 2018

Didn’t realize I couldn’t get frequent flyer miles until after I booked. The flight fare was great, but by the time I have to pay to check a bag both ways, and the lack of frequent flyer miles, I could have booked with Southwest for the same price and free bags. Although the United flight and staff were very good.

Nov 30, 2018

I wasn’t able to add the Skymiles on the United app. Perhaps somehow it could be made simpler. Thanks

On-time departure and arrived early!

Friendly staff...makes the trip pleasant! Very helpful with concourse directions.

General Mitchell International Airport is just five miles from the city's business district, making it a short drive from most areas in Milwaukee. Though the airport only offers international flights to Canada, carriers like Delta Connection and Southwest Airlines handle domestic flights.

Your Best Transportation Options

Those who do not want to pay for parking at the airport can use the Milwaukee County Transit System. It only costs a few dollars to ride, and you can ride the bus from dozens of stops in the city. The airport has its own shuttle system that picks up travelers from the stop near the front of the airport to transport them to the terminal.

Aiport Parking Options

The other two parking lots are only open for hourly parking. The cost ranges from $2 per hour to $12 per hour for the daily lots. If you park in one of the hourly lots, you will pay $22 for 24 hours of parking.
