Illinois International Airport
Great Lakes Basin Transportation, through another dedicated, non-rail non-highway subsidiary, is actively pursuing the opportunity to participate in the next round of development opportunities for the South Suburban Airport, which are managed by the Illinois Department of Transportation. This new airport will primarily support the movement of air cargo in the southern portion of the Chicago region and provide needed capacity to expand and potentially support passenger traffic into the future. In addition to providing new airport capacity, Great Lakes Basin Transportation will work with all parties in the region to provide efficient access to the airport and improve the efficiency of air cargo transportation. Our mission is to advocate a fresh approach to developing the newest airport in the United States.
