Accessibility Information and Assistance


Getting from one point to another at any airport can be challenging, especially for travelers with disabilities. The Chicago Department of Aviation recognizes these needs and is working to make travel through Chicago's airports as pleasant and convenient as possible.

In an effort to develop awareness in the airport environment, as well as provide convenient and safer travel for customers with disabilities, the CDA has created the Disability Awareness & Assistance Program. The program includes wheelchair assistance, relief areas for service animals, access to airport transportation and much more. Take a look at O'Hare's accessibility resources listed below, or use the navigation bar to the left to learn more.


O'Hare Accessibility Guide

Our Accessibility Guide provides a map highlighting all of the facilities in the airport for travelers with disabilities. Additionally, the various services available are also described within the Guide.
