Chicago Midway International Airport

Midway International Airport

Depart Chicago from Midway International

Chicago area air travel in the 1920s began with a single runway made from cinder. Chicago Midway International Airport began as Chicago Air Park on 320 acres of land, approximately eight miles from downtown Chicago. In 1927, the mayor of Chicago, William H. Thompson, dedicated the airport as Chicago Municipal Airport. By 1931, it became the "World's Busiest" airport having serviced more than 100,000 passengers. It remained busy until Chicago O'Hare International Airport claimed the title in 1961.

In 1949, Midway was renamed Chicago Midway Airport in honor of the Battle of Midway during World War II. The airport remains the second largest commercial passenger airport in Illinois, behind O'Hare. Passengers looking for commercial travel to Denver, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Orlando, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Kansas City, St. Louis, Detroit and Los Angeles, can do so with Southwest Airlines, Delta Air Lines and Frontier Airlines. International travel is provided by Volaris Airlines and Porter Airlines.
