FAA STATEMENT ATTRIBUTABLE TO ADMINISTRATOR MARION C. BLAKEY IN RESPONSE TO CLOSING OF MEIGS FIELD

 

We at the FAA were concerned to learn 
this morning of the decision to close 
Meigs Field.  Already, we have heard 
from members of the general aviation 
community and we share their concern.  
Removing any centrally located airport 
such as Meigs from the system only 
diminishes capacity and puts added 
pressure on O’Hare and Midway airports.
