Wayne County Metropolitan Airport
The major airport in the Millennium City area is the Wayne County Metropolitan Airport (referred to as “The Metro”), located 18 miles south of the city in Romulus, Michigan. The airport handles over 40 million passengers a year and it serves as a hub for several airlines, including Liberty Airlines.
Security was tightened extensively after the September 11 attacks, but not at the expense of slowing down travelers. Thanks to some help from Dr. Silverback, Defender, and other technologically-oriented heroes, and grants from several corporations, the airport has developed passenger- and baggage-screening technology far more sophisticated than that at other airports. Travelers can breeze through scanner checkpoints without having to so much as remove their keyrings from the their pockets and the system examines every piece of luggage.
