Cheap flights from Houston to Chicago

Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD) is one of the busiest airports in the country, and there are many good reasons why so many people are coming to Chicago. It is a diverse city that offers art, drama and sporting events. Whether you want to spend the day at the Art Institute of Chicago or the Lyric Opera, the area's hundreds of attractions will keep you entertained while you are in the Windy City.

Chicago is a sports-lover's dream. From a day spent in the bleachers at Wrigley Field, cheering on the lovable Cubs, to an evening spent in a suite watching the Bulls, the sports scene in Chicago is hard to beat.

Key Facts

Interstates 90 and 55 are the most used routes in and out of the city. Traffic in Chicago can be very heavy at times, but it is manageable with a GPS unit that can provide alternative routes. Chicago is located on the shores of Lake Michigan, and jogs around the lake are a great way to stay in shape.

Hints and Tips

Passengers travelling from Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) to Chicago can expect a flight time of just over two hours. When you land at O'Hare, head to the lower level outside of baggage claim where you can board a shuttle bus to the rental car facility.

*Price based on the lowest price found within past 24 hours and based upon one night stay for two adults over the next thirty days. Prices and availability subject to change. Additional terms may apply.
