  • Train from Midway to South Bend.
    Sep 22, 2014
    I'm trying to find out if I can get a train direct from Midway airport to South Bend. Is it possible?


    There are no direct trains. You have to take the CTA Orange Line to downtown Chicago then walk to Millenium Station to take the South Shore Line to South Bend. However, there is direct bus service from Midway to South Bend -


  • Need info on disabled traveling alone
    Jul 26, 2014
    I can not get any info please help. I am disabled, flying with my cat from Midway to McAllen Tx. I am flying alone and there is no one here to help me once I get to the airport with my luggage. Does Midway have a service for disabled people that helps them with getting the luggage to the check in ? Thank you for any info.


    For wheelchair assistance you need to call your airline 24 hrs prior to departure, so that someone will be outside at curb helping you all the way to the gate. Also find out about their pet policy. If you can put your cat (in kennel) in front of your feet inside the plane - it would not cost you extra & would be more humane for the cat (you can also find airline info regarding wheelchairs and pets on your computer (www. airline 2. As to Terminal service, ask for the 'Purple Airplane Sticker from any Airport or Security staff -and trained Airport volunteers will be happy to assist you. Both the Garage & Economy parking have special parking spaces. The economy lot has a free shuttle bus with lift (tel. 1-773-838-0756.)


    I travel with my service cat. You either need service animal requirements found on airline websites usually a vest or tag and service card or a letter in formation also found on airline website stating you need a comfort animal.


  • Need HELP NOW
    Jan 3, 2014
    You need to get staff to the airport immediately and get people off of the planes. Have been travelling for hours. Unacceptable to leave them on runway now. Red alert evening.


    Contact your airline. This is not the airline's website.


    Nor is this Midway Airport's website.


  • Help, cats will be travelling with me to Chicago from Mexico.
    Aug 20, 2013
    I need information on requirements for the import of pet cats. So far, I am meeting the airlines requirements, such as transportation fees and the vet's health certificate, but I have not received a reply from Midway on further fees I may need to pay at the port of entry. I'd like to know if I have to pay for a health inspection,or an import permit. I am also concerned about whether my cats will be taken elsewhere for the inspection and if they'll be detained for days. Any help is welcomed.


    There are no federal requirements for Cats - and no state requirements - Therefore you'll be fine as long as you meet the airline's requirements.


    Thank you. Does that mean I won't be charged for any international animal health permits? I am particularly confused by the following information on the APHIS website- Do these fees not apply to me?
