MDW Had Rumors is WestJet or Swoon service in 2019.
Other than that.
Allegiant has Been actively putting up adding MDW service up over Gary. Few months ago it seemed as MDW won the battle against Gary but nothing new come about since.
Speculation was if they do come to MDW it would be by November or December 2018.
Also talk that MDW airport has agreed to Let's WN pay for DL to relocate to Gates A14/A16.
WN will be taking over gates A5/A9.
Then will redo the gate areas , jet bridges and adding a connecting walkway to the international arrivals area by gate A3.
This will give WN the ability to have international swing gates cut down Turn and aircraft ground times by 70% and increase international flights by 20% at MDW.
During the gate reconstruction WN will temporarily use gate s C1 and C3.
This is all predicted to happen between 2019/20
MDW new checkpoint is coming along a steady pace. Looks like their getting things ready to break ground on the new Park lot over CTA yard.
It would be nice to see more international service at MDW. And nice to see WN looking to boost service. I felt that MDW was being passed over by WN on recent expansion by them.
It would be interesting to see Allegiant at MDW and routes they would start.
