Section 1

Airport’s history

The site for Chicago’s new airport was marked in 1945. The area was initially an Orchard Field located on the northwest side of the city. The Chicago City Council changed the name of the Orchard Field to Chicago-O’Hare International Airport in 1949. The name was in honor of LT. Commander Edward H. O’Hare, who passed away during the Second World War. The airport was officially opened to commercial flights in 1955. In its first year, O’Hare airport served 176,902 passengers, and the number has increased ever since. Initially, there were four runways, and a fifth one was added in 1957. Some of the first airlines served by the facility include Air France, Capitol Delta, Ozark, Pan American, Trans Canada, and United.  The first terminal began operation on 8th August 1958 with the arrival of TWA flight from Paris. By April 1959, the then mayor of Chicago, Richard J. Daley, led the ceremonies for the expansion of the Airport to 7,200 acres. By 1963, the President John F. Kennedy acknowledged the large number of clients and aircrafts that were served by the airport. He stated that O’Hare was an extraordinary and could be perceived as one of the wonders of the modern world. By 1965, the airport served about 20 million passengers and 30 million by 1968. In the 1960s and 70s, various facilities were opened up, including the Seven Continents Restaurant, first taxiway, a sixth and seventh runway and a six level parking facility among other improvements (Chicago Department of Aviation, 2016)…..
