Virgin America seeks approval to serve Chicago’s O’Hare (ORD)

Midwestern fans of the newest, shiniest airline to hit American soil, Virgin America, received some good news this morning: the airline is seeking government approval to set up shop at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.

O’Hare, the world’s second busiest airport, would make Virgin America’s 8th official destination with plans to fly to and from both San Francisco (SFO) and Los Angeles (LAX).

No official word on when this would happen if given approval, but we’ll keep you updated.

Chicago Business has a good rundown of the logistics of such a process, and what it could mean for Chicago and O’Hare.
