This Midwest City Is The Only One In The Country To Offer Non-Stop Flights To 6 Continents

If you want a buffet of international destinations at your command, then you might want to consider a move to Chicago.

This bustling Midwest city is about to become the only U.S. city that offers flights to six continents. The new title will be official when Air New Zealand starts operating out of O’Hare in the fall of this year.

This news comes amidst a flurry of planned expansions to O’Hare International Airport, including a new global terminal, three new passenger concourses, new runways, and plenty of updates to existing facilities. The revamp will cost about $8.7 billion. Yes, with a “b.”

In case you’re curious, there are just four other cities in the world that fly to all of the upper six continents – London, Johannesburg, Doha, and Dubai. World travelers who aren’t looking to move across the pond may want to think about making Chicago their home base.
