ADI Brands Chicago Flights as Great Lakes Express

VIENNA, Ohio – Aerodynamics Inc., the operator of the daily flights to Chicago O’Hare International Airport set to take off July 1, is branding the passenger service as Great Lakes Jet Express.

In announcing the trademark, the company said passengers will fly on the 50-seat Embraer ERJ-145 regional jet aircraft, which “touts a flawless safety record.”

The planes will be stationed at the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport and will be maintained by fixed-based operator Winner Aviation. Great Lakes will operate a ticketing counter at YNG, and will share a ticketing counter at O’Hare, said the airport’s director of aviation, Dan Dickten.

Ticketing booth signage for Great Lakes Jet Express will be unveiled tonight at the Youngstown Warren Regional Chamber’s mixer at the airport.

“Now that ADI has the trademark in place for the airline, everything is coming together nicely for the launch, which is just a week away,” Dickten said in a statement. “We’re also working diligently with ADI to ensure passengers have a variety of options to book their flight. Direct flights to Chicago can be booked at, and passengers looking to book connecting flights to other destinations can do so on third-party sites like Expedia, Hotwire, Justfly, Kayak, Orbitz and Travelocity.”

The airport has published a how-to guide for purchasing tickets, which can be downloaded at or by clicking here.
