You can fly to Wisconsin and into a number of different airports
in the state. The two international airports are the Green Bay Austin Straubel
International Airport and General Mitchell International Airport that services
Milwaukee. The Milwaukee
airport is the largest and busiest in the state, and is only six miles south
of the city. Even though these are international airports, most Wisconsin flights
will have you connecting in another major U.S. city.
When you fly to Wisconsin from Europe, you will probably connect in major
hubs like Chicago or New
York City. From Asia, you'll most likely connect in Seattle,
San Francisco, or Los
Angeles. However, because they are international airports with facilities
for Immigration and Customs clearance, passengers can check their luggage all
the way through to the final destination and not go through entry formalities
until final arrival. There are some direct international flights to Wisconsin
into Green Bay and Milwaukee
from select cities in Canada.
Several other airports accept flights to Wisconsin with commercial passenger traffic. These include Eau Claire, Appleton, La Crosse, Rhinelander, Madison, and Wausau. Most of these are primarily for general aviation (private aircraft) traffic, but there are some passenger flights. There are direct Wisconsin flights to these airports from a number of U.S. cities. They are not international airports, so you will have to clear Immigration and Customs in your connecting city en route if you are coming from another country.
Sometimes, you may find that your best cheap airfare to Wisconsin is actually into an airport located in another state. The Minneapolis-St. Paul airport in Minnesota is located right on the state's western border, for easy access to Eau Claire and other destinations in the west-central part of the state. O'Hare or Midway Airport in Illinois are good gateways to the southern part of the state if your final destination is Milwaukee, Racine, or Kenosha. These airports are good options if you have someone meeting you on arrival or if you're intending to take advantage of car rental and drive to your Wisconsin destination.
When you fly to Wisconsin you will find that the two largest airports, Milwaukee and Green Bay, will have the best and most varied passenger amenities such as car rental outlets, parking, and hotels. You will want to use the Green Bay Airport if you're intending to take in a Packers game or if your final destination is one of the resorts on the peninsula that includes Sturgeon Bay and Door County.
