    Chicago O'Hare International Airport and the UK’s Birmingham Airport have become “sister airports”.

    The pair have formalised their relationship and will work to develop new opportunities.

    The priority is to reinstate direct flights between the two cities.

    Members of the executive management teams from the Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) and Birmingham Airport signed a memorandum of understanding this week, agreeing to work together to strengthen trade, tourism and cultural links.

    Birmingham Airport is the third largest airport in the UK outside of London and handles nine million passengers annually.

    O'Hare is the largest airport in the Midwest region, and one of the busiest airports in the world, handling nearly 67 million passengers in 2011.

    CDA commissioner, Rosemarie Andolino said: “Through promotion, we will enhance business, commerce, trade, tourism and cultural relations between the two cities, and share information and best practices relating to operations, construction, planning, customer service and cost management.”

    thanks for the info, although I would rather see O'hare work on their own congestion problems first

    Or getting the airport to a point where it can take a380's. That would make plane watching so much more enjoyable!:)
