John Wayne Airport, owned and operated by the County of Orange, California, is embarking on an Airport Improvement Program - one of Orange County’s largest-ever public works programs.
The Airport Improvement Program includes construction of a new multi-level terminal building with six new commercial passenger gates, six new security checkpoints, greater baggage screening capability, 2,000+ new parking spaces and new commuter facilities at the north and south ends of the extended terminal.
From its first day of operation in September 1990, the Thomas F. Riley Terminal has established a reputation for superior customer service, convenience and security. The Airport has served more than 100 million commercial passengers since that day. Designed to accommodate 8.4 million annual passengers (MAP), the Riley Terminal served nearly 10 million passengers in 2007. Quite simply, the Airport is bursting at the seams.
With a strong policy, environmental and financial foundation in place for the Airport Improvement Program, JWA is committed to providing those who live in and visit Orange County with safe, efficient, and attractive airport facilities.
