O’Hare Terminal Expansion Will Use View’s Smart Windows

View, Inc. said Tuesday its smart windows will be installed in the new 350,000-square-foot expansion of Terminal 5 at O’Hare International Airport. The expansion is part of the $8.5-billion O’Hare 21 project, with Terminal 5 serving as the new home for Delta Air Lines in Chicago. 

The Terminal 5 expansion will increase the terminal’s gate capacity by 25%, adding 10 new gates, new concessions and a new Delta Sky Club premium lounge facility featuring View Smart Windows. 

“As more people return to the skies, transforming airports from curb to gate to be comfortable, healthy, and efficient will be key to instilling confidence in travelers,” said Jamie L. Rhee, commissioner of the Chicago Department of Aviation. “Incorporating View’s state-of-the-art, smart windows in Terminal 5 will help us provide an exceptional passenger experience while also making the airport more efficient and reducing our energy usage.”
