Chicago O'Hare International Airport is one of America's best-connected airports and for many years was the busiest airport in the US.

In 2009, Chicago O'Hare received the Global Traveler Award for "Best Airport in North America" for the tenth consecutive year.
Dallas Forth Worth International Airport is the main hub for American Airlines. DFW offers nearly 1,900 flights per day and serves over 57 million travelers every year. Ranked as the third busiest airport in the world, DFW was rated as "Best Customer Service in North America" by an Airports Council International survey in 2006 and 2007.

In anticipation of a new air carrier and new destinations, Columbia Regional Airport recently redesigned the FlyMidMo.com website to reflect new flight schedules, airline information, and other customer services such as the "Savings" calculator. We encourage travellers to use the cost savings calculator to see if the base ticket price flying from St. Louis or Kansas City is truly a better deal.
