"Unfortunately, these kinds of non-scientific, click-bait blogs are abundant and misleading and not an official source of airline fare data. While the airport continually pitches domestic and international flight opportunities to the airlines, choices made by Milwaukee’s travelers are the most important factor in determining how quickly our airport grows. Airlines add flights where passengers are boarding, and if local travelers choose Milwaukee for all of their flights, our community’s nonstop air service will grow."Ranking above Milwaukee was John Glenn Columbus International Airport in Colombus, Ohio, with 45 deals. Further down on the list were other small-to-mid-size airports including Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Louisville International Airport in Louisville, Kentucky; and Long Beach Airport in Long Beach California. Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro, North Carolina ranked as the No. 1 worst airport for international travel, with 22 deals last year. By comparison, John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York topped the list of the best airports, boasting 436 deals. The report said Milwaukee-based travelers would find more deals at Chicago O’Hare International Airport, which snagged the No. 6 spot on the best airports list and sees "more than six times the number of deals Milwaukee receives." It also cites Milwaukee as a "focus city" for Southwest Airlines, which could provide travelers with more opportunity to score discounts at the company's larger domestic destinations, such as New York (LGA), Chicago (ORD), Detroit (DTW), Atlanta (ATL) and Minneapolis (MSP). But the state of international travel out of Mitchell may soon improve. Plans have been in the works for a new international arrivals terminal as part of a $50 million improvement project initially slated to be substantially complete by 2020. In addition, Boyd Group International's annual Airports:USA forecast indicates increased international flights are expected at large- to mid-size airports such as Milwaukee, Memphis, St. Louis and Kansas City. That would happen as part of a predicted increase of nonstop flights to Europe from cities such as Albany, Grand Rapids, Columbus and Louisville by the end of 2024, according to the forecast.
