Most flights to Chicago land in either O'Hare Intl. Airport (ORD) or Midway Intl. Airport (MDW). O'Hare is located on the northwest side of the city, and Midway is located on the southwest side of the city. O'Hare is the fourth busiest airport in the world when ranked by passenger traffic and the world's second busiest airport when ranked by aircraft movements. Midway is much smaller; it's the thirtieth busiest airport in the United States and the second largest airport in Illinois. Major airlines with a significant presence in O'Hare include United Airlines and American Airlines, and major airlines with a significant presence in Midway include Southwest Airlines. Other airports in the Chicago area include Gary/Chicago International Airport and Chicago Rockford International Airport. Both of these airports have been competing for the chance to become the third major Chicago airport, but the state of Illinois seems to be contemplating building an entirely new airport instead of going with either of the existing minor ones.

When to book your Chicago airfare
Tickets to Chicago are popular throughout the entire year. This is due both to the fact that Chicago is an amazing vacation destination and that the city hosts many conventions throughout the year. However, you'll find that Chicago flights are particularly hard to find during the high season of April through December. If you're not really interested in outdoor activities, you can find great deals on flights and hotel rooms during the winter and spring; there are plenty of cultural sights and fun things to do indoors.
