Midway Airport


Midway Airport is bouncing back from the COVID-19 pandemic and the $333 million Midway Modernization program is nearing completion, according to Chicago Department of Aviation officials.
Elizabeth Granados-Perez, managing deputy commissioner of Midway Airport, and Alex Leon, deputy commissioner in charge of design and construction, shared the good news at the May 11 United Business Association of Midway held at the Airport Maintenance Complex at 6201 S. Laramie Ave.
UBAM executive director Anita Cummings, a founding member of the business organization reminded her audience that the business organization was a driving force behind the revival of Midway Airport that began in 1979 when Midway Airlines began operating and she was brought in as a hiring consultant.
UBAM also worked closely with Southwest Airlines founder Herb Kelleher when he brought in his airline when Midway Airlines went out of business a few years later.
“The desire was to reactivate the airport. At that time, no one wanted to do it—not the neighborhood or the city. So, it took an organization like ours to see the future of the airport proper and what it could do for the neighborhood.
As of March, there are 172 daily flights out of Midway to 73 U.S. cities and eight  to international locations.
Granado-Perez said that with the growth in concessions as part of the Midway Modernization capital improvement program, there are now 29 restaurants and pubs in the airport—including more than 22 new brands. There are also 18 retail shops and eight vending machines offering fresh food options (and a Build-A-Bear one). She said some moving sidewalks were removed to make room for the new eateries.
