Chicago O`Hare International Airport

Where is Chicago O`Hare Airport?  


Windy City. Home of the blues. The world's first skyscraper. Deep dish pizza. What makes Chicago famous? The answer depends on who you ask, but few would dispute that Chicago is among the world's greatest cities.


When you see the skyscrapers of today, consider the source of Chicago other nickname: Second City. In 1871, the Great Chicago Fire not only killed 300, but it virtually wiped out the city. Chicago was rebuilt from scratch. Today's lakeside cityscape and Magnificent Mile museums, to name a few, are evidence of resilience in this vibrant, cosmopolitan city.


Chicago O'Hare International Airport (IATA: ORD, ICAO: KORD), also known simply as O'Hare Airport or Chicago O'Hare, is the busiest airport Chicago, Illinois, United States. ORD in situated northwest of the Chicago Loop (downtown), about a 45 minute metro ride away. 


All major North American airlines fly here, and many international carriers. ORD is United Airlines' largest hub (their headquarters are downtown) American Airlines' 2nd largest hub. Virtually all large cities in the USA and Canada are served by direct flights from O'Hare. On a typical day at ORD, flights depart for international destinations such as Amsterdam, Beijing, Brussels, Luxembourg, Mexico City, Panama City, Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo.


It all makes for one busy airport! In fact, Chicago O'Hare Airport served 66.5 million passengers in 2011, making it the 4th busiest airport in the world. Not to mention the busy bees! We are referring, of course, to the on-site beehive farm which, along with a green roof and other initiatives, are bringing O'Hare recognition for its leadership as a green airport.


A lot of people see Chicago on a layover: O'Hare Airport ranked 1st on the Weather Channel's Top 10 Airports for Flight Delays. The city's other major airport, Chicago Midway International Airport (MDW), took 8th spot.
