MONEY ‘BEST IN TRAVEL 2018’ RATES JOHN WAYNE AIRPORT BEST IN THE U.S.

Costa Mesa, CA (March 23, 2018) — John Wayne Airport this week was rated the best airport in the U.S. by MONEY in their annual Best in Travel rankings.

“John Wayne Airport is the gateway to Orange County, welcoming business and leisure travelers to this world-class destination,” said Chairman Andrew Do, First District Supervisor. “We take great pride in this well-deserved recognition as the best airport in the country.”

To find the best airports in the U.S, MONEY analyzed 80 of the nation’s top airports, taking into account customer experience scores from J.D. Power, reader reviews from Travel + Leisure, on-time arrival rates, security delays, and traveler amenities such as shops and restaurants.

This is the first time that MONEY has included John Wayne Airport in its annual list of the 15 Best Airports in the U.S.

John Wayne Airport was ranked number one among large airports in 2017 by J.D. Power, scoring particularly high in areas including airport parking and access, as well as security processes. The Airport also provides a number of superior guest amenities, including 24 restaurants and free high-speed Wi-Fi throughout the terminals.

“Our commitment to providing a superior guest experience in a world-class airport is the guiding principle for everything we do,” said Barry Rondinella, Airport Director, John Wayne Airport. “Every member of our team contributes to our success and shares in this honor.”
