On a flight to Chicago, you have a choice of two major airline terminals that service the city, Midway and O'Hare International. The latter, a true world gateway, boasts an award-winning International Terminal designed for passenger convenience, and efficient customs clearance, where visitors present passports, visas and personal information as requested by the customs agent at the termination of their flight to Chicago.
Four passenger terminals provide lower level roadway access to ground transportation, including reserved limousines, rental vehicles, taxis, charter buses, Airport Express, and quick and easy highway and rapid transit access to downtown Chicago and the suburbs.
If your flight to Chicago includes a connecting flight, proceed up one level to the Airport Transit System where a free shuttle can take you to any of the domestic terminals.
