CHICAGO — The snow, rain and cold weather has made this winter an icy one.
Now, O’Hare Airport has a new weapon to fight the ice.
The airport has unveiled a central de-icing facility.
It allows the airlines to de-ice their aircraft from a new dedicated location, instead of at the gate.
The “Ice Rink” – as it will be known – can hold up to 20 narrow-body airplanes or five wide-body airplanes at a time.
