AirTran officially opens hub at Mitchell International

MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- AirTran officially opens its hub at Mitchell International.

The airline's chairman and CEO came to Milwaukee Tuesday to cut the ribbon along with county leaders.

Mitchell now becomes AirTran's second hub, providing more service and connections, but more importantly more jobs.

The addition means 50 new pilots, 50 new flight attendants and support staff jobs.

AirTran started flying out of Milwaukee in 2002. Its other hub is in Atlanta.
