Airports in Wisconsin

Dane County Rgnl-Truax Field

Quaint, clean and well-run are some of the first words that come to mind when traveling through Dane County Regional Airport (MSN), which serves Madison, Dane County and all of south-central Wisconsin, USA.

This zippy little airport has a fair amount to offer for such a small space, and as it should only take you a few minutes to walk from security to whichever one of the 13 gates you’re flying out from, you should have a little time to sample one of the tantalizing eateries at hand.

Don’t, however, mistake the intimacy of Dane County Airport for small-town laxness  – the airport is renowned for having extremely thorough security, so be sure to have all your liquids in a bag and your shoes removed before entering into the line.
