 MDW Chicago Midway Airport Info & Guide

Chicago Midway International Airport

Where is Chicago Midway Airport?  

Deep dish pizza. Home of the blues. The world's first skyscraper. Windy City. What is Chicago famous for? It all depends on who you ask, but there's one thing for sure: Chicago is one of the world's greatest cities.

What you see today is what earned Chicago another nickname: Second City. Following the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 (that sadly killed 300) meant the city had to be rebuilt virtually from scratch. Modern Chicago's lakeside cityscape, Magnificent Mile museums, fine dining - and more - create a vibrant, cosmopolitan city loved by many.

Chicago Midway International Airport (IATA: MDW, ICAO: KMDW), or simply Midway Airport, is the second busiest airport in Chicago, Illinois, United States. MDW is situated on the southwest side of the city, a 25 minute metro ride from downtown. MDW served 18.9 million passengers in 2011.

Airlines serving Midway Airport include AirTran, Delta, Frontier, Porter, SouthWest (a major carrier here) and Volaris.

International destinations served include Toronto, Canada and several cities in Mexico (Guadalajara, Mexico City, Monterrey, Morelia and Zacatecas). Domestic destinations are many, including Austin, Charleston, Cleveland, Ft. Myers, Jackson, Little Rock, Nashville, Omaha, Pittsburgh, Portland, Reno, Sarasota And St. Louis - as well as all the major centres.

Many see Chicago on a layover: Midway Airport ranked 8th on the Weather Channel's Top 10 Airports for Flight Delays. The city's other airport, the bigger and busier Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD), took top spot.

Your best bet for a Midway Airport transfer is the CTA Orange Line train. Your best alternates are a taxi or shuttle. Details on all options are included in this guide.
