MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - When it comes to flying, Milwaukee businesses say their biggest concern is to get more non-stop flights to and from Mitchell International.
The Greater Milwaukee Committee surveyed area businesses about their priorities for airline service -- which has declined in the wake of consolidations, a slow growing economy, and big rises in jet fuel costs.
The committee released only general figures, and did not give details as to the cities where Milwaukee businesses want more non-stop flights.
87 percent of the corporate travel respondents said non-stop service was their biggest concern, and 77 percent mentioned overall flight availabilities. 60 mentioned fares as a concern.
Only 23 percent expressed concerns about the convenience of flying out of Mitchell, as opposed to other Midwest airports.
