Midway International Airport Will Get Priority Pass Lounge
For the first time in the airport’s 95-year history, Chicago’s Midway International Airport will offer a lounge to its customers starting in 2024. Midway is one of the only major airports in the U.S. without a passenger lounge.
According to Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson and the Chicago Department of Aviation, the lounge will be located in the Central Market between Concourses A and B, and will be available to travelers regardless of which airline they’re using.
Developed in collaboration with Midway Partnership, which is redeveloping and managing the airport’s commercial program in partnership with the CDA, the design of the 3,300-square-foot club will draw inspiration from Chicago’s rich architectural history, featuring high-contrast, monochromatic tones. While the classic minimal geometry offers an elegant backdrop for the design, combining a wide range of materials, including metallic accents and plush upholstery that provide a warm and comforting guest experience.
The Club MDW will be accessible through Priority Pass, the world’s largest airport lounge membership program. Many premium credit cars offer complimentary Priority Pass membership. A day pass can also be purchased by any Midway passenger with a boarding pass for $50.
Construction on The Club MDW will begin early next year for a fall 2024 opening.
