O'hare + Midway International Airports


Domestic U.S. and International Flights come into both Chicago airports, so you have lots of options to fly in.

Both airports are connected to the CTA train system, which can take you to North Chicago where the event is being held.

In general, flying into Midway is cheaper, but it is much further away than O'Hare. You might make up the difference in ticket price in transportation from the airport to the venue, so do your research before purchasing your plane ticket.
