Fliers in and out of Rhinelander will soon have more options.
The Rhinelander-Oneida County Airport will start offering daily, direct flights to Chicago this summer.
Airport Director Matthew Leitner couldn’t be more excited for this moment.
“Euphoric. This was a two-, two- and half-year initiative. A lot of people were an integral part of it. It was a real campaign. I have to extend my gratitude to all of those who were an integral part of it,” said Leitner.
Leitner said it’s been about 20 years since Rhinelander has had a direct flight to Chicago O’Hare.
