The word's out. Major carriers say they won't use the Gary or Peotone airports.
One reason is there isn't a large list of passengers, being so close to the two major airports in Chicago, landing and taking off, consuming a large amount of fuel, for a short stop.
Passengers leaving vehicles at Gary/Chicago International Airport are concerned about security. A stigma that has hung over Gary for decades has hurt the city's name.
This Gary airport was poorly surveyed from the start of this project. One thing after another tells you that. The latest is a toxic swamp found at the airport. What will be next?
One good thing at the airport is the healthy wages airport officials are receiving, but how long will this ride last, without any backers?
