The Midwest has many large, easily accessible airports. Illinois is the hub for national and international traffic at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport.
O'Hare is home to United and American, and served by 45 other airlines. It's about an hour from the Loop by train or taxi. Chicago's smaller airport, Midway, is served by 16 commercial airlines and is about 30 minutes from Chicago. Both airports are accessible by Chicago Transit Authority rapid rail lines.
