Private Jet Flights to PWK: Chicago Executive Airport - Chicago, IL

PWK Private Jet Charter Flights to Chicago Executive Airport

Chicago Executive Airport Overview

There are 5 separate airports in Chicago and the surrounding areas. But if you have to choose one for your Chicago private jet charter, the best option is the Chicago Executive Airport, located in Wheeling, IL about 18 miles from the city center.
The airport benefits from three different PBOs, including:

  • Atlantic Aviation
  • Signature Flight Support
  • Hawthorne Global Aviation Services

It also has several nice seating areas outside to watch planes, and – while the airport itself does not have any restaurants – there are several very nice dining options just a few streets away.

But perhaps the best reason to travel via private jet to PWK when heading to Chicago lies in what it is not. The two main airports of Chicago are O’Hare and Chicago Midway. But those two airports experience an extremely high amount of traffic, leading to congestion that can make a trip more stressful. PWK is used almost exclusively by business jet travelers, thus making it the perfect option or getting in and out comfortably.

In addition, it is the closest general aviation airport to downtown Chicago, and it has runways that are capable of handling almost any size executive jet. Add that to the world class service that you receive from the staff working at Chicago Executive Airport and its clear to see why PWK is the best place to both arrive and depart when you charter a private flight to Chicago.

What to See Around PWK

Chicago Executive Airport is located right near the aptly but coincidentally named “De Plaines River,” which has parks surrounding the area of the river closest to the airport. There is also the Wheeling Island Hotel and Casino nearby for those that would like to fit in a bit of gaming, and several theaters for those that would like to catch a show. If you’re interested in eating, some of the best dining can be found at:

  • Figaretti’s Restaurant
  • Wheeling Brewing Company
  • The Pointe

There are not a lot of fine dining options, but there are several family restaurants that at least provide a unique and home-style experience.
