About General Mitchell International Airport

General Mitchell International Airport is a county-owned, joint civil-military, public airport located five miles south of the central business district of Milwaukee, a city in Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, United States. It is named after United States Army Air Service General Billy Mitchell, who was raised in Milwaukee and is often regarded as the father of the United States Air Force. Along with being the primary airport for Milwaukee, Mitchell International has sometimes been described as Chicago's third airport, as many travelers in the suburbs north of Chicago use it as an alternative to Chicago O'Hare and Chicago Midway. It is also used by travellers throughout Wisconsin and Northern Illinois.
