“Chicago has always stood at the crossroads of the world and the global economy. This news reflects and reinforces our city’s broader economic success story as airlines add new routes to international markets, companies continue to locate in the city, and neighborhoods experience an infusion of economic growth. As Chicago reclaims its place with the world’s busiest airport, it speaks to the strength of our city’s economy – the No. 1 city in America for corporate relocations, the top metro area for foreign direct investment, and record growth in international tourism.”
