Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is scheduled to meet with some airline executives on Monday.
The mayor says he wants to discuss potential improvements to the city workforce and infrastructure that could help Chicago build its airline industry.
"We [the city] have all the basic assets," said the mayor in a press conference on Friday. "We have to think through and constantly ask questions, because I don't want to just sit on the lead, I want to expand it."
The mayor says he invited all major airline CEOs to the meeting.
