MKE Coat Check Service Remains ‘Game Changer’ for Travelers

Dec. 22, 2021
Mitchell Airport says it is the only major U.S airport to allow travelers to check their coats.

  Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport is bringing back its popular coat check service for the third straight year. This winter amenity remains a hit among passengers.

In partnership with Paradies Lagardère, the service is offered inside Summerfest Marketplace’s convenient pre-security location. Travelers can leave their coat with a friendly attendant for the low cost of just $2 per day, or $10 per trip. This eliminates the need to bring bulky coats, gloves, and other unneeded items for a warm weather trip.

“We are always looking for innovative ways to make the travel experience easier and better for our guests here at Milwaukee Mitchell,” said Airport Director Brian Dranzik. “That’s why we’re thrilled to bring back our popular coat check service for another year. We offer nonstop routes to Florida, Arizona, California, Mexico, and the Caribbean this winter. Our travelers already taking advantage of MKE’s low fares and new nonstop destinations will find tremendous value in this added service.”

MKE received international recognition for the coat check service from the Airports Council International – North America in 2020.

“We’re thrilled to offer the coat check service in our Summerfest Marketplace store for yet another year,” said Mike Barnes, regional vice president of Retail for Paradies Lagardère. “This simple yet very popular convenience complements our excellent retail program at the airport and allows us to add a little something extra to the great service we enjoy delivering to MKE travelers.”

MKE’s Coat Check program operates seven days per week and is available for all flights.
