Amenities and Guest

Comfort and Convenience
That’s Second to None

There’s a reason John Wayne Airport is considered by many to be Southern California’s best-loved airport. Not only does the Airport have a long-standing reputation for quality air service, we also offer a superior guest experience. That includes many of Orange County’s local favorite restaurants and shops, comfortable amenities and convenient flights to the destinations people want most.

Convenient flights to the destinations people want most.

We opened a new Animal Relief Area (ARA) across from Gate 12—the first such area provided past the security screening checkpoints, making life easier for guests traveling with their service animals and pets.

A New Private Lounge
for Nursing Mothers

We opened a Nursing Mother’s Lounge post-security near Gate 12—the first of its kind in the Airport. This quiet and private space features comfortable seating, a changing table, a sink, electrical outlets, adjustable lighting and is decorated with artwork from JWA’s annual aviation-themed Student Art Contest.
John Wayne Airport offers more than 20 dining options—from quick grab-and-go meals, beverages and snacks to breakfast, lunch or dinner in more relaxed settings. Guests can find a balance of national brands such as Starbucks and California Pizza Kitchen, and restaurants that are uniquely Orange County such as Ruby’s Diner and Zov’s.
