Enhancing the Travel Experience with Health and Convenience

APPLETON, Wis. – Leaders of the Appleton International Airport are pleased to unveil upgrades to the airport facility, as well as announce a significant partnership with ThedaCare. From the collaboration, travelers will notice health features throughout the airport, as well as a more convenient travel experience.

“The upgrades we’ve made will help our community members through the process of air travel,” said Abe Weber, Airport Director. “From the beginning of the partnership with ThedaCare, we’ve kept our passengers in mind as we’ve developed new, healthy and more convenient upgrades to our facility.” 

Appleton International Airport is now the third largest airport in Wisconsin. In 2018, Appleton was named the fourth fastest growing airport in the country by Bloomberg News.

New additions to the airport include a more streamlined security checkpoint featuring a living plant wall and an open floor plan for improved directionality.

Appleton International Airport and ThedaCare similarly provide expert, local service to the people of Northeast and Central Wisconsin. ThedaCare’s vision throughout this partnership was to connect health and comfort to a traveler’s journey. Those moving through the airport will notice healthy menu options, hand sanitizer and comfortable, colorful seating.

“Making healthy choices should be convenient at all times, including while traveling. We want to support our community by providing healthy options and wellness tips that promote a healthy lifestyle,” said Dr. Imran Andrabi, President and CEO of ThedaCare. “We are especially excited to offer a best-in-class mothers’ room, which was designed in partnership with our knowledgeable family care providers with convenience in mind. Some of the features include a changing table, charging station, refrigerator, sink, microwave and a calm, soothing environment to help mothers relax with their babies.”
