After 95 years, Midway Airport gets a lounge

Chicago’s Midway Airport getting its first lounge

Each year, more than 22.7 million people fly through Chicago’s Midway International Airport (MDW).

But while they can access amenities that include a yoga room, permanent and temporary art exhibits, and a wide variety of dining and shopping outlets, there is no independent or airline-affiliated lounge.

And in the airport’s 95-year history, there has never been one.

But this time next year that should change.

The Club, which operates lounges in close to 20 US airports, is coming to MDW and will offer complimentary food and beverages and what is promised to be an “inviting, relaxing environment.”

The Club MDW will located in the airport’s Central Market area, at the intersection of Concourses A and B. And, like the other lounges in The Club’s network, will be available to all travelers, regardless of airline and class of service. Access will be available via the Priority Pass program or a $50/per visit fee.
