Airports & Flights
Buckle up and secure your tray tables. As soon as the cabin door closes, your Wisconsin vacation begins. Featuring two major airports and several regional ones, flying into Wisconsin is easy, and it’s only the beginning of your first-class family vacation, romantic getaway or friends reunion.
Near Milwaukee, Madison & More
Wisconsin's busiest airport, the Mitchell International Airport (MKE), is the airport you want to fly into if your gathering or getaway is in Milwaukee or another popular nearby destination, like Lake Geneva. All major airlines fly through here, including the low-cost carrier Spirit, with nonstop flights included.
Although Madison is just a little more than an hour-long drive from MKE, the state capital also features its own airport, the Dane County Regional Airport. Five major airlines land here, from Delta to American. Direct flights are available from many big cities, including but not limited to Minneapolis, Miami and Las Vegas.
To land in the heart of the state, fly into the Central Wisconsin Airport (CWA) between Steven’s Point and Wausau. This regional airport is serviced by American and Delta through Chicago and Minneapolis.
If you and your crew are flying in to experience a Green Bay Packer’s home game, you’ve got a couple of great options to choose from.
Fly into the Green Bay Austin Straubel International Airport (GRB) to touch down in the heart of Green Bay. Here, you’re only a short car ride from legendary Lambeau Field and the lively Titletown, full of tasty restaurants and plenty of places to stay. It's also the airport to fly into if you plan on adventuring through the orchards and bays of the Door County peninsula. Fly in on Delta, United or Frontier, to name a few, from cities like Chicago and Detroit.
Just a 45-minute drive from Green Bay is the Appleton Airport (ATW), a larger airport with even more frequent arrivals and departures available year-round. Explore the sights around Lake Winnebago or take a shuttle from a local pub to Green Bay with friends for the ultimate gameday experience.
Along the Mississippi River
To access some of our state’s most gorgeous western regions, like the Driftless Region and parts of the Up North area, fly into the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) in Minnesota situated just across the Mississippi River.
Though a Delta hub, MSP is served by all major airlines, including Alaska, as well as many low-cost carriers. A quick drive east from the airport on Interstate Highway 94, and you’re in Wisconsin near one-of-a-kind destinations like Hudson and Menomonie.
If you’re visiting Eau Claire and the surrounding area, fly into the Chippewa Valley Regional Airport (CVRA), served by United. While waiting for your flight, check out pieces from local artists displayed throughout the terminal. And if your travels take you a little farther south to La Crosse, along the Mississippi River, fly into the La Crosse Regional Airport (LSE) served by Delta and American.
Landing in any of our welcoming cities will be a great start to your adventures here. Pick your destination and a nearby airport and get ready to make unforgettable memories in Wisconsin.
