John Wayne Airport partners with community volunteers to offer additional services to our travelers and to members of the community.

Volunteer Tour Guides

The Airport’s Tour Program started shortly after the Riley Terminal opened in 1990. Currently, JWA's trained Tour Guides provide tours to students, foreign visitors, scout troops, at-risk youth and many others.

These terrific volunteers, many of whom have decades of experience in the field of aviation, educate tour participants about JWA’s history as well as provide fun, interesting and useful facts about the Thomas F. Riley Terminal.

Within the region, JWA is one of only two airports which offer public tours free of charge.

Volunteer Ambassadors

John Wayne Airport is fortunate to have approximately 60 dedicated local citizens acting as volunteer "Ambassadors." The objective of the Volunteer Ambassador Program is to provide Airport users with friendly, informed service that enhances their experience at John Wayne Airport.

"Goodwill" Ambassadors are trained in customer service to assist passengers with any questions they have about John Wayne Airport's facility or services. Information they provide includes directions to particular airlines, gates, restaurants, restrooms, phones, and rental car counters to name just a few.
