American Airlines to expand Miami to daily nonstop service out of Milwaukee
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- American Airlines announced it will expand its nonstop service between Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE) and Miami International Airport (MIA) from weekly to daily beginning in November.
American Airlines currently flies between Milwaukee and Miami on Saturdays through Aug. 14. However, beginning Nov. 2, the route will be offered daily through April 4, 2022. Officials say this will provide a convenient service for Wisconsin residents who have second home in south Florida.
“This marks the first time ever that Miami will be served daily from Milwaukee, and this route expansion proves how important it is to fly from Milwaukee’s hometown airport. The more that passengers fly from MKE, the more routes airlines will fly from MKE as air travel recovers from the pandemic,” Airport Director Brian Dranzik said. “Miami is American’s largest international gateway. These flights are timed perfectly for connections on American to the Caribbean and Mexico, along with Central and South America, during the upcoming winter travel season.”
Flights will depart Milwaukee at 6 a.m. and arrive in Miami at 10:20 a.m. Returning flights will leave Miami at 9 a.m. and return to Milwaukee at 11:30 p.m. Tickets are available now.
