“This really formalizes our existing relationship,” explained Airport Director Tom Miller.
Murphy said of the partnership, “We’ve had a long-standing relationship with the Green Bay airport. Having a strong and vibrant airport is important to our organization and it’s important to area businesses and residents as well. The Gateway to Lambeau Field designation is a fitting designation.”
Though not much is changing beyond the airport slogan, the partnership strengthens ties between the Packers and the Community.
