Your voice, your hometown airport.

“Time has become more important to me. So, flying out just saves me that two and a half hours of driving back and forth.”

“I fly MLI because, one it’s close to home. Two, it’s just easy for me to get here, especially in the Winter, in Iowa. And it’s just very convenient. And like I said, I just love the airport.”

“Air travel is essential to economic growth in any community. When we think about the importance of having an airport with so many direct flight offerings as MLI has, it’s essential to our future growth in delivering on our ambitions and growth vision for the future.”

“I’ll just be honest, great prices and it’s an hour and a half away. We’re from Cedar Rapids and so it’s closer than Des Moines. It’s a smaller airport. Everyone here is really nice and you can get right in.”
