Gary itself is a pretty rundown town with a sky high crime rate so that probably plays a role, plus you are pretty far from the populated more Illinois suburbs and major business districts such as Naperville or Schaumburg. Transportation also probably plays a role since it isn't really connected to any mass transit unlike O' Hare or Midway.

Except we can't find details about the terminal, eg. details like number of check in desks, pasport controll etc.

Does anyone know who to contact or where to find this data?

With Regards!
You might want to try contacting or emailing the airport directly for details such as the number of check in desks, etc.

Anyways all immigration/customs operations take place in Terminal 5.

All true. However one Gary's runways are lengthened and if/when they build an easy connection from the South Shore Line station one mile away I think its chances of being a REAL viable alternative for many Chicagoans. The South Shore line runs directly from downtown and the near south side/Hyde Park and then combine it with the 1 million population of NW Indiana you could have the start of something.

Certainly better then no where Peotone or Rockford IMO.

South Shore line makes a stop at Gary Airport.

And Newark is a rundown ghetto like Gary but people still use EWR.

But yea you are right, its too far.

Any pictures of the new runway from the air. I have seen pictures of aircraft using the runway. Any reports of how its handling traffic. Which aircraft use it on a daily basis. I am surprised that Emirates has not announced ORD yet. Etihad and Qatar both serve it. Its one of the few markets that both EY and QR serve it and no EK. Even Turkish Airlines serves ORD. What's holding them back from opening the route. Is there no gates at the time it would arrive so it would arrive at some time where they make no money.

I disagree with Diablo.

It's not that people don't choose Gary, it's that airlines don't. And the airlines don't choose it because of its inadequate facilities: the roads connecting the airport to the metropolitan area's grid are poor; there's no direct rail service; the terminal is small and rundown; and until recently, the runways were too short. The airport just wasn't inviting to carriers.

IMO, with proper investment and political will, and with enough demand for additional seat capacity for the Chicago region, Gary can very well succeed; it's close enough to downtown Chicago, and the south suburbs and NW Indiana are too far from ORD/MDW, so a Gary airport can fill a niche, at least for many domestic trips, some leisure flights to FL/AZ/Mexico/Caribbean, and connector flights to hubs like ATL, DFW, EWR/JFK, DTW, etc.

Newark isn't actually a rundown ghetto. It's changed a lot. The southern part of the city is ghetto, but the downtown has been revitalized, the east side (the Ironbound) is very vibrant with lots of businesses, bars, and restaurants, and the north side is middle class.

Newark has bounced back. Gary, unfortunately, hasn't.

BTW, everyone:

Emirates will finally come to Chicago, launching ORD-DXB service in August.

Also, and I find this a bit odd, Delta will launch ORD-LHR service in October. (article). There's nothing strange about direct flights between major world cities like Chicago and London, but I find it odd that the service is being launched by Delta, since ORD is not a DL hub, nor is LHR a SkyTeam hub (DL has ORD-CDG flights, but that sorta makes sense since CDG is a SkyTeam hub. And it's a seasonal flight, serving the route half the year when Air France isn't). Altough not a hub, I guess DL wants to make Chicago a focus city, since there's enough demand for direct service between Chicago and cities like London...kind of like how DL servces some long-haul destinations from Los Angeles, even though LAX isn't a hub either.

GTR66, the new runway can be used by all aircrafts, up to A380. I think they talked about landing aircraft piling up while waiting to cross 10C/28C.

30 injured in CTA Blue Line derailment at O'Hare

Quote:

A CTA car is on an escalator at the O'Hare Blue Line stop. (WGN-TV / March 24, 2014)



Thirty people were injured after a CTA Blue Line train derailed and hit a platform at O'Hare International Airport about 2:55 a.m. Monday.

The injuries are not life threatening, according to early reports from the scene to Chicago Police Department headquarters, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said.

The Chicago Fire Department asked for an EMS Plan 2 at the scene, which brings 10 ambulances and a handful of support vehicles and supervisors.

It's not clear how fast the train was moving but it jumped a bumper at the end of the line and moved up an escalator, according to Chicago Fire Department Spokesman Larry Langford.

The CTA posted to its Twitter page that trains were stopped at O'Hare but running between the Logan Square and Rosemont stops.

CTA Spokeswoman Lambrini Lukidis said buses were being used between the Rosemont and O'Hare stops.

O'hare really needs to expand Terminal 5 and build some A380 gates.

SAS is a pretty good airline, they were actually nice enough to move me to business class after they requested for me to change seats.

"Good" in terms of what? Legroom? In-flight meals? In-flight entertainment?

All major carriers are the same...you won't be flying in a junky airplane with chickens in the aisles and parachutes given to passengers for emergencies.

Pardon my sarcasm. Some things, like in-flight entertainment and legroom may very between aircraft of the same airline. You can Google airline review websites; take negative reviews with a grain of salt. SAS is good, like almost all major carriers.

Rather than listen to the reviews of random people that don't travel often, and only complain as a way of boasting that they traveled somewhere, I would recommend this website: http://www.seatguru.com/ where you can read for yourself about the different specifications of each aircraft in an airline's fleet. Airline A's B747 might be great, but their A340s might have less legroom. Likewise, Airline B's A340s may have better legroom than their B747s. This can also go for in-flight entertainment, and so on. But all the major European airlines are perfectly fine, including SAS. Personally, I have flown with SAS, both transatlantic (ORD-CPH) and within Europe. Perfectly fine.

Santo, Chicagoans don't go to Gary because the airlines don't go there, and the airlines don't go there, because the airport is inadequate: the runway is too short, the terminal is small and dilapidated, and the airport has poor road and transit connections. Distance is no issue; it's only slightly further from the city center than O'Hare, and the entire southern region of the Chicago metropolitan area would love to have an airport closer to them than ORD and MDW. If they improved the airport and the roads/transit to from the airport, then people will come.

I did some research. Newark Airport by driving is around 20 miles to Manhattan. Gary Airport is about 26 miles from Chicago. Granted it didnt say which part of Chicago.

I think third airport in Chicago should be Gary. Peotone is nonsense.
