Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International remained closed to flights through noon CT today after a deluge of rain left some of the airport’s runways under standing water. More than a half foot of rain fell in the Milwaukee area on Thursday, causing widespread flooding throughout the city.
On its website, the airport tied the closure to “flooding on the airfield and roadways leading to the airport,” according to Reuters. The airport advised “travelers should contact their airlines before heading to the airport to determine the status of their flights and make alternative arrangements if needed.”
AirTran, one of the top carriers in Milwaukee, issued a flexible travel policy this morning for customers affected by floods and disrupted flight schedules.
The carrier says passengers schedule for travel to, from or through Milwaukee today “may change their reservation without penalty as long as travel is completed within five days from the date of the original scheduled departure date, based on space availability, without fees or fare adjustments.”
