Rosemarie S. Andolino manages one of the world’s busiest airport systems comprised of O’Hare and Midway International Airports. Chicago’s airports handle more than 87 million passengers, one million operations, over 1.4 million tons of cargo each year and have an annual operating budget of $1 billion. Commissioner Andolino is also charged with implementing the O’Hare Modernization Program — an estimated $8 billion program which is increasing the airport’s efficiency and capacity well into the future. Since Andolino was appointed as Aviation Commissioner in 2009, the CDA has enhanced the airports’ concessions programs, increased concessions sales and grown non-airline revenue. For Andolino and the CDA, air service development is a high priority, as well as a revived focus on customer service and amenities. Andolino is a member of the U.S. Travel Association; the U.S. Travel and Tourism Advisory Board; the International Association of Airport Executives Board of Directors; the World Travel and Tourism Council; and the International Air Transport Association. She also serves on many other industry boards and charitable organizations. Her distinguished 24-year career in public service has included positions within several City of Chicago departments.
