Tips for Chicago O'Hare & Chicago Midway Travelers

Posted on 2 July, 2013 at 10:29
If you're lucky enough to be flying to your vacation destination this summer, here are some helpful tips to set your summer vacation to a good start.

Chicago Midway Airport Travel TipsMidway Airport may be a better choice for domestic travel. 
 
Locals know that Midway Airport is much smaller and suffers fewer delays than neighboring O'Hare Airport to the north. The location also means less traffic congestion. Midway Airport is served by many low-cost carriers, such as Southwest Airlines, and is a much easier airport to navigate. Both airports are accessible by Chicago Transit Authority.
 
Travel in the morning.
 
Airports tend to be less congested after the 6-7 a.m. departure rush. In addition, weather systems typically form and hit later in the day. This is especially true for summer thunderstorms. According to delays.com, the worst time to fly through O'Hare is 7-9 p.m., when afternoon delays and runway jams pile up causing a ripple effect.  At O'Hare Airport, terminals 1, 2 & 3 are busiest Monday mornings, Thursday afternoons and all day Friday.
 
Use a foreign airline when traveling from O'Hare Airport internationally.
 
Foreign airlines' planes are flown less than United or American's planes, so flights are less-likely to be delayed. Airlines such as Lufthansa and Air France, for example, have good on-time ratings. You might also enjoy better perks on foreign airlines. Check out www.seatguru.com to research plane features and seat recommendations.

Chicago O'Hare Airport Travel TipsTo park or not to park.
 
Parking at O'Hare Airport costs from $9-$53 per day, with the least expensive option requiring 45 minutes travel time to terminals via shuttle or Airport Transit System. Midway Airport parking costs about the same, from $15-$31 per day, with remote lots as low as $9 per day ($7.50 with a coupon), also requiring terminal transportation time via shuttle bus. Smart travelers know that door-to-door limo or airport car service is the best option.  Round trip limo rental is often less costly than parking at the airport and provides a variety of benefits, not the least of which are convenience and relaxation. 
 
Reasons to use transportation service to get to Midway Airport or O'Hare Airport:
1. The kids will think it's really cool
2. Your vacation can start the second you get picked up in your driveway
3. Bags only have to be carried from the curb to the skycap
4. You can catch up on email
5. You can play Words with Friends
6. You can create Tweet-envy bragging about your vacation destination
7. You can play the alphabet game
8. You can make last minute phone calls 
9. You don't have to pay for gas
10. When you get home, you will be so thankful that someone is picking you up at the airport door!
