Travel Information

Airline discounts to Chicago

We have arranged for airfare discounts on both United Airlines and AirTran Airways for convention attendees. You can save up to 10% on your ticket purchase with these discounts!

AirTran Airways  -  AirTran flies into Midway Airport.  For a discounted AirTran flight, reservations must be made by calling the AirTran EventSavers Desk at 1-866-683-8368 and using the following event code: MDW070311.  Reservations booked individually online will not qualify for the 10% discount.   A great benefit of AirTran EventSavers is the ability for NAMI Convention Attendees to make a one-time change (name or itinerary) without having to pay the change fee; (however, any fare increases still apply.)

United Airlines  -  United flies into Chicago O’Hare Airport.  Contact United directly at (800) 521-4041 and refer to:
NAMI Meeting Code: 590CF.

You will save even more money if you book your ticket on-line at and use the NAMI meeting code.  To receive the discount, click on “book flight” and enter your travel details.  Then, at the bottom of the reservation request, click on “more search options” and type in the NAMI meeting code 590CF in the box labeled “promotion code.”
