Originally named Orchard Field Airport, the airfield that served as a manufacturing plant for C-54 military transports during World War II. O’Hare International Airport is now one of the busiest airports in America. In 1949, the airport was renamed to O’Hare International Airport to honor Edward O'Hare, the Navy’s first flying ace during World War II. The original code ORD (Orchard Field) remains to this day and was created from the first two letters of ‘Orchard’ and D comes from the last letter in ‘field’.

The complex array of runways, taxi pathways, gates and terminals is fascinating to explore in our beautiful map. The unique and complex airport diagram was created from accurate GIS and satellite data in 2020.  

When flying into and out of ORD, passengers can get a bird’s eye view of Lake Michigan, Navy Pier, and the majestic skyscrapers in the Loop (like the Willis Tower, Trump Tower, and John Hancock Center). One can marvel at the wide span of homes, businesses, railroad, and road networks spanning out from the center of Chicago’s downtown area, the Loop.

History of the Airport

Chicago O'Hare International Airport, often simply referred to as O'Hare, has a storied history that mirrors the growth and development of both the aviation industry and the city of Chicago itself. As one of the world's busiest airports, O'Hare's history is marked by innovation, expansion, and its crucial role in connecting people and goods across the globe.

O'Hare's origins can be traced back to the 1940s, when the city of Chicago recognized the need for a modern airport to replace the aging Midway Airport. The city chose a site near the village of Orchard Place, which eventually became the location for O'Hare Airport. The airport was named after Lieutenant Commander Edward "Butch" O'Hare, a World War II hero and Medal of Honor recipient who hailed from Chicago.

O'Hare officially opened its doors to commercial aviation in 1955, and its early years were marked by rapid growth and a commitment to modern design and innovation. It became a model for airport design, with its parallel runways, centralized terminal complex, and innovative air traffic control tower. O'Hare's layout and facilities set new standards for airport functionality and efficiency.

Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, O'Hare continued to expand to accommodate the increasing demand for air travel. The airport added terminals, runways, and facilities, solidifying its reputation as a major hub for domestic and international flights. The iconic Terminal 1, also known as the United Airlines Terminal, opened in 1987 and showcased the latest in airport design and passenger amenities.

O'Hare's central location and its status as a major hub for several major airlines made it a critical link in the global aviation network. It became a gateway not only to destinations across the United States but also to international cities around the world.

However, O'Hare's growth and success were not without challenges. The airport's popularity led to issues of congestion, delays, and the need for ongoing infrastructure improvements. To address these challenges, the airport embarked on a series of modernization projects aimed at enhancing passenger experience, increasing capacity, and improving sustainability.

In recent years, O'Hare has undergone a transformative expansion known as the O'Hare 21 project. This ambitious endeavor includes the construction of a new Global Terminal and Concourse, additional runways, and other infrastructure enhancements. The project aims to position O'Hare as a state-of-the-art airport that can better accommodate the needs of both passengers and airlines in the 21st century.

O'Hare's history is closely tied to the city of Chicago's identity as a global metropolis. The airport's contributions to commerce, culture, and travel have made it an essential part of the city's landscape. Its role in connecting people and facilitating economic growth has solidified its reputation as a crucial hub in the world of aviation.

In conclusion, the history of O'Hare Airport is a testament to the evolution of aviation, urban development, and the ever-changing demands of air travel. From its groundbreaking design in the mid-20th century to its ongoing expansion and modernization efforts, O'Hare's story reflects the spirit of innovation, connectivity, and progress. As Chicago's premier airport, O'Hare continues to play a vital role in shaping the city's future and its connections to the rest of the world.
