  • WEST CHICAGO, Ill. – The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) Division of Aeronautics has chosen DuPage Airport as the 2015 Illinois Reliever Airport of the Year.

    The award, which is presented to an airport serving general and corporate aviation needs in a large metropolitan area like Chicago, comes on the heels of the successful completion of DuPage’s $11.4 million project to widen and rehabilitate its primary runway, the second longest runway in Chicagoland.

    “DuPage Airport is an outstanding example of aviation excellence in Illinois,” said Steven M. Young, interim director of the IDOT Division of Aeronautics. “We applaud the leadership and commitment of the executive staff and Board of Commissioners to operating a first class facility.”
