MKE Airport Unveils New Parking System

Nov. 23, 2022

Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport has unveiled a new parking access/revenue control system, launching an improved parking experience for travelers just in time for this year’s holiday travel season.

As part of the new system, MKE now offers convenient Parking Pay Stations throughout the terminal to speed up your exit from our parking facilities. To use this option, travelers are encouraged to follow these steps:

1. Remember to bring your parking ticket with you. Don’t leave it in your vehicle. You can also take a photo of the ticket with your smartphone.

2. When you return from your trip, use the Parking Pay Stations, conveniently located at each Skywalk and in Baggage Claim, to scan the ticket or photo of the ticket.

3. You can pay with a credit card, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay, or cash.

4. After completing your payment, you will have 30 minutes to get to your car and exit the parking facility at no extra charge.

5. When you approach the exit lane after making payment, the system will automatically raise the gate arm to provide for an express exit.

For an even faster experience, travelers can download the MKE SmartPark app and use their smartphone to enter and exit any of MKE’s parking options.

“Our goal is always to further enhance our easy travel experience,” Airport Director Brian Dranzik said. “These new pay stations speed up the payment process by allowing customers to pay in the terminal before leaving the Airport.”

The new pay stations can be used for all parking areas owned by MKE, including the parking garage, the surface lot and the Saver lot.
