Commercial Filming

FLIGHTS... CAMERA... ACTION!   DTW Airport has played a leading role on both the small and silver screens.  Thanks in large part to Michigan's generous film production incentives, the Airport has played the part of airports ranging from Milwaukee to Hong Kong -- with a few cameo appearances as itself, too.

  • AWOL (2012)
  • The Citizen (2012)
  • Machine Gun Preacher (2011)
  • Up in the Air (2009)
  • This Must Be the Place (2011)
