Sky high: passenger growth continues at Chicago Midway

This article takes a look at the ways in which Chicago's Midway International Airport has handled recent rapid growth and is thriving, even with the larger O'Hare International Airport nearby. Midway offers a low cost structure, a robust flight schedule and convenient access centrally located in Chicago. It is also the number one market for Southwest Airlines, one of the most successful carriers in the industry. Investments over the past ten years have given the airport a bright, modern look and feel, including an expansion of concessions, artwork and exhibitions, and a new rental car facility that opened in March 2013.
