Quad City MLI Airport Overview
Quad City International Airport MLI serves travelers throughout Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois due to its strategical location not only to the cities of Bettendorf, Moline, Rock Island and Davenport, but also to the Iowa border. Multiple Highways lead to these cities and to the airport, particularly I-80 and I-280 - both of which connect to the terminal and parking facilities.
MLI Airport is located in Moline, Rock Island County, in the northwestern part of of Illinois, and is reached directly by Hwy 6, (exit to Frontage Road) or via Interstate 280.
With a newly rehabilitated 10,000 foot runway, and 0.8M passengers a year, Quad City International is served by a few major airlines offering nonstop flights to major US hubs with connections around the world.
NOTE: 1. The passenger terminal opens its doors at 3:30am; while security screening starts at 4am.
2. Passengers are expected by most of MLI's airlines to be at their boarding gate 30 mins prior to scheduled departure.
The new passenger terminal at Kalamazoo / Battle Creek Airport recently completed its terminal project by adding an expansions to the security checkpoint, the baggage claim area & the rental car facilities. Covered passenger boarding is now available for all flights and second-level gates boarding. Natural light is now being used more efficiently.
