This modern and relatively newly built airport in Illinois, colloquially called O'Hare, is virtually the busiest airport in the world in terms of flights, with over 2,500 departures and arrivals per day. It has four terminals, about 200 boarding gates and serves non-stop flights to over two hundred destinations. Initially, the main activity of the O'Hare airfield was the maintenance of a factory for the production of military aircraft. It got its name in honor of Edward O'Hare, the first holder of the US Navy Medal of Honor. At this Chicago airport, innovations such as jet bridges and underground refueling systems have been applied. For half a century, from the day of its foundation, O'Hare Airport combined the functions of a civil and military airfield, and only in 1999 did the military completely withdraw their units and aircraft from there, and the Airport was completely transferred to the jurisdiction of the Department of Chicago, leaving only civilian flights, cargo and commercial aviation. The airport is currently undergoing global expansion, an increase in the number of terminals, gates, take-off and landing lanes, and the construction of an additional customs center. All construction phases take place in stages, without interrupting the current activities of the airport. The distance to Chicago and nearby cities is more than 25 km, and of course moving to the city and further movement is most comfortable by car. Car rental companies, with a large presence at the airport, offer a wide variety of rental cars, from economical sedans to luxury minivans. With a rental car, you can visit the cities of Wisconsin and Indiana, walk in the Allerton and Busse nature reserves, and see the unique Geological Region of Giant City Park.
