Not only has the Airport been recognized for the excellence of its construction and design efforts, but also for how well it communicates with key stakeholders. In June 2012, JWA was recognized by Airports Council International - North America (ACI-NA) with first place honors in the ACI-NA Excellence in Marketing and Communications Contest for the Airport’s 2010 digital Annual Report. ACI-NA received nearly 250 entries in this year’s contest, which recognizes airport achievement in public relations and marketing throughout North America. Also in June, JWA received a PROTOS, the highest recognition awarded by the Orange County Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America. The PROTOS was given for the Airport’s Media Day Press Tour - "John Wayne Airport's Terminal C Takes Flight" - where more than 40 members of the media participated in an exclusive early-look at Terminal C before it opened to the public in November 2011.
Congratulations to JWA's team of contractors and staff!
