Chicago Midway Airport:
In the heart of the Windy City's southwest region, Chicago Midway International Airport (MDW) stands as a testimony to the city's bustling aviation history. A mere 8 miles away from the vibrancy of Chicago's Loop, MDW serves as a gateway to this iconic city, accommodating millions of passengers every year with its renowned Midwestern charm.
