Chicago O'Hare to open new runway in Oct-2013, expects to overtake Atlanta by aircraft movements

US' Chicago O'Hare International Airport stated (17-Jul-2013) it expects to open its new runway (10 Centre/28 Centre) on 17-Oct-2013, and is predicting it will overtake Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport as the world's busiest airport as measured by aircraft movements. FAA spokesperson Tony Molinaro said: "Hopefully, recent growth at O'Hare can be sustained. The other good news is that we have a new runway coming on line that will truly help the operation during poor weather. The runway is coming at the right time, and the tower can't wait to use it."
