The Gary/Chicago International Airport unveiled a new hanger this month. The nearly 25,000 square foot, $1.3 million East Corporate Hangar is Gary’s newest facility enhancement since 2015, when the airport completed the airport runway expansion from 7,000 to 8,859 feet.

“Build it and they will come,” said Tim Fesko, Chairman, Gary/Chicago International Airport Authority. “This runway expansion allowed us to greatly increase our ability to handle more cargo in general aviation usage and marked a turning point for the airport.”
