History

Chicago Municipal Airport hosted its first airmail flight which arrived from Nebraska in 1927.

In 1928, 41,660 passengers used the airport and by 1929 it was the busiest airport in the world.

In 1955 Chicago O’Hare became operational and by 1961 flights at O’Hare outstripped flights at Midway causing it to lose the “World’s Busiest Airport” title.

In 1973, there was a large decrease in flights operating at Midway due to oil and fuel shortages. All major airlines switched to operating out of O’Hare.

In 1978, there was greater deregulation in the aviation industry and airlines started to resume flights.

Its convenient location and manageable concourses allowed it to attract low cost carriers and put the airport back on the path to recovery.

In 2012 the airport reached a new record with 19.5 million passengers passing through the airport. This was beaten on 2013 with over 20 million using the airport.
