Detroit has always been a trade off; spending 6 hours in a car or driving to
Detroit Metro airport, arriving at least an hour early, the time and hassle of security screening, that can take at least 5 hours as well," said
Greg Stallkamp, CEO, Lakeshore Express. "Our service from Oakland County Airport makes flying to
Chicago a truly great experience."

Our check-in times are measured in seconds and due to low volumes on our flights, security screening is equally as quick. Flying on Lakeshore Express is like having your own personal jet."
