Aurora Muncipal Airport

The Aurora Municipal Airport is a full-service Chicago-area corporate aircraft facility, situated just outside the Class B airspace for O'Hare International Airport. Aurora Municipal Airport is the only airport in the Chicago area with direct tollway access. Located just eight miles west of downtown Aurora and 35 miles west of the City of Chicago, the airport is just minutes from major business parks and the Reagan Memorial Tollway Research and Development corridor (I-88). Aurora Municipal Airport assures easy access both in the air and on the ground.

The Aurora Municipal Airport is open 24-hours a day to serve your business needs, averaging 450 flights daily. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Air Traffic Control Tower provides for safer departures and arrivals, and is open 7 days a week. The 6,500 foot primary runway is equipped to handle the entire corporate aviation fleet of aircraft. Two other runways help keep traffic moving during peak times or inclement weather, providing for safer landings and takeoffs at the airport.
