Chicago told the Federal Aviation Administration in a quarterly report that it continues to hopes it can resurrect a proposed privatization of Midway Airport.
The city reported that it is continuing deliberations. It did not say, as it did in its last report, that it would seek a lease at the earliest possible date. The city must file quarterly reports in order to retain its hub privatization slot under the FAA’s pilot program. Chicago was poised last spring to enter into a groundbreaking $2.52 billion agreement to lease Midway to a private consortium under the program.
