O’Hare night flight shakeup debuts Wednesday through Dec. 25

The biggest official shakeup to O’Hare Airport night flights in nearly 20 years debuts late Wednesday with the launch of a plan aimed at more evenly distributing overnight jet noise.

Starting Wednesday evening, night runways will be rotated every week, over a 12-week cycle, as part of a six-month test due to end Christmas morning.

The move should give some Northwest Side Chicagoans, as well as suburbanites west of O’Hare, a temporary respite from heavy jet traffic at night. They should be able to plan, with some certainty, undisturbed late-night outdoor parties and get a sound night’s sleep on certain weeks from as early as 10:30 p.m. through 5:30 a.m. Read the rest of the SunTimes story
