US Airways moving to Concourse D at Mitchell International Airport
Several U.S. carriers are shifting their flights operations from Concourse E to Concourse D at Milwaukee’s Mitchell International Airport.
Mitchell International Airport authorities recently said that the airport is planning to shut down one of its three concourses because of the declining air traffic as well as shifts in gates among various airlines.
Pat Rowe, spokeswoman for Mitchell International Airport, said that the airport’s decision to permanently close its smallest Concourse E is going to help save an unspecified amount of money. According to a report by Milwaukee County, the gate shifts are going to cost the airport nearly $1.1 million.
US Airways recently said that it is moving from Concourse E to Concourse D, which has 23 gates and is currently the largest concourse of the airport. Another U.S. carrier Delta Air Lines has also announced it is going to increase its flights frequencies from Mitchell International Airport and would be moving to Concourse D from Concourse E.
