Our U.S. Customs facility is open, allowing air travelers to visit the airport from any international location without needing to clear customs elsewhere. Our 8,859 runway is the 2nd longest in the region, after O’Hare International, allowing us to handle planes up to and including a 777, one of the largest planes in the world.
GCIA is situated in a multi-modal transportation hub with immediate access to four major interstates, Class I rail and shipping. We are located outside of O’Hare and Midway airport airspace, avoiding congestion in the air and on the ground.
GCIA is dedicated to providing quality service, low cost and convenient access, to provide lasting benefits to our surrounding community. Recognized as Chicago’s Third Airport, GCIA represents the highest degree of safety and operational efficiency with the capacity and room to grow into the future. Learn more
