Chicago Area Airports


Chicago's O'Hare International Airport is the larger of the two airports, and is the airport closest to the Chicago suburb of Naperville, where the MM17 is being held.  ORD is a very busy and expansive international arrival and departure hub, served by all major airlines, and has four terminals: Terminals 1, 2 and 3 and Terminal 5. The is no Terminal 4. Each terminal is clearly marked and aasily navigable, with good signage and information assistance. If you are flying from an international destination without a layover in another US city, your flight will arrive at this airport. Additionally, almost all domestic airlines will have fights that can be booked to arrive and depart from ORD. Taxi, Uber, Lyft and private car services are all readily available, and all major  car rental agencies are represented here.  Click the following link to go to an excellent site that gives complete information and details about O'Hare Int'l Airport. 




Midway is the smaller of the two Chicago airports, and serves primarily domestic arrivals and departures for Delta, Southwest, United and ViaAir.  MDW has three concourses (A ,B & C) and is connected to the Chicago Transit system by a "boulevard". Because of it's smaller size, and it's proximity to downtown Chicago, it is often cited as being  an "easier" airport than OR.  It is a manageable airport with good signage, but has fewer services and amenities (and is further from the MM17 hotel) than O'Hare Int'l.  Taxi, Uber, Lyft, Airport Express shuttle,private car/ limousine service and major car rental agencies are all available at Midway.   When making a decision on which airport to use, keep in mind that although a flight to MDW may be slightly less expensive, you have to factor in the cost of transportation to the hotel when making a cost-based  decision.
