General Mitchell International Airport Energizes its Passengers

MILWAUKEE (November 19, 2013) – Passengers flying in and out of Milwaukee County’s General Mitchell International Airport (MKE) will now find it easier and more convenient than ever thanks to 60 new, free-to-use charging stations throughout the airport.

Located conveniently in between gate-area seating, each charging station provides passengers with access to six outlets and two USB ports for easy charging of cell phones, laptops, tablets and other personal electronics. The stations stand 62” tall and are lit to make them easy to find.

“We pride ourselves here at MKE in providing a friendly, comfortable travel environment, and listening and reacting to the needs of our passengers,” explained Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele. “Our new charging stations provide a convenient way for both leisure and business travelers to stay plugged in, and will continue to improve the already great customer experience.”

The new charging stations have been installed on the D Concourse, and the remaining concourses will be completed within the next few weeks.

General Mitchell International Airport is owned by Milwaukee County and operated by the Department of Transportation, Airport Division, under the policy direction of the Milwaukee County Executive and the County Board of Supervisors. The airport is entirely funded by user fees; no property tax dollars are used for the airport’s capital improvements or for its day-to-day operation.
