Virgin America lands at O'Hare Airport

February 17, 2011 11:43:32 AM PST
Virgin America Airlines will offer nonstop service from Chicago to Los Angeles and San Francisco starting May 25.

The California-based airline's arrival at O'Hare means only one major domestic airline is not serving the Chicago market.

O'Hare currently offers nonstop service to 198 cities worldwide and has 52 airlines operating flights from 189 gates.

Virgin American will use one of 11 gates the city recently acquired from Delta Airlines by the city in O'Hare's Terminal 3. Six of those gates will go to American Airlines.
