Green Bay airport flying high after growth

Customer demand is helping you see more planes leave Green Bay’s Austin Straubel Airport. The airport saw passenger traffic rise more than 14 percent in 2022 over 2021 as airports worldwide inch closer to pre-pandemic levels. According to Aviation Week, passenger traffic worldwide reached 70 percent of its pre-pandemic traffic in 2021, which could rise as high as 85 percent in 2023. Planes leaving Austin Straubel Airport are 90 percent full, something Airport Director Marty Piette says is exceeding the national average.

Airline carriers have also noticed the increased demand for flights arriving to and departing from Austin Straubel Airport. In the coming months, you will see larger planes from Delta serving Green Bay flights to Atlanta and more flights between the city and Detroit. Frontier is also prepared to resume its non-stop flights between Green Bay and Denver next month.
