Drop Off and Pick Up

As one of the busiest airports in the world, there are always many travelers arriving and departing from O'Hare International Airport. For this reason, O'Hare offers many convenient options to easily drop off and pick up passengers.

Drop Off Options​

Curb Front
Departing passengers can be dropped off at the curb front of any O'Hare terminal. Simply follow the signs for Departures which lead to the upper level roadway. From there you can drop off at the terminal where the departing airline is located. Upon entering O'Hare there are signs informing you which terminal each airline is located. You can also find that information here.

All terminals are wheelchair accessible. Wheelchair assistance is available through your airline. Please contact your airline in advance to make arrangements.


Kiss 'n' Fly

Kiss 'n' Fly is an easy way for passengers to avoid the terminal area roadways, which can get congested during peak arrival and departure times. The Kiss 'n' Fly drop off point provides passengers direct access to the free airport shuttle bus service, which quickly shuttles them to any of the airport's four terminals while the Airport Transit System is under construction. 

We encourage you to follow these simple drop-off and pick-up procedures

Drop-Off

The drop-off point is located off Mannheim Road and Zemke Boulevard, on the northeast corner of the Multi-Modal Facility. This location is particularly convenient for travelers reaching O'Hare from the north and northwest suburbs.

Pick-Up

Passengers arriving at O'Hare should take the free shuttle buses on the lower level of each terminal that are marked "Lot F / rental Cars" back to the Multi-Modal Facility where your party will be waiting for you. There is a 15 minute parking limit in the lot.

Cell Phone Lot  View Map​
The cell phone lot enables motorists to temporarily park- free of charge- until friends, family members or business associates deplane, collect their baggage, and call to be picked up at the curb front. These convenient waiting areas eliminate the need for circling the airport repeatedly if you are early or if a party arrives later than expected. Utilization of the cell phone lot ultimately results in less roadway traffic and congestion, less air pollution and more auto fuel savings.

When entering the airport, follow the signs to the arrival lanes (Terminals 1, 2 & 3). Stay to the left until you pass Terminal 3. Stay left at the fork in the road and the Cell Phone Lot entrance will be on your left.
