It’s a Four-Peat! PDX Again Takes Travel + Leisure Honors

Once again, Portland International Airport has taken the title of America’s Best Airport by Travel + Leisure! This makes it four years in a row that we’ve been deemed the very best in the nation.

Travel Leisure award
Chris Czarnecki, director of PDX terminal properties, and Shane Andreasen, senior manager of concessions development, headed to New York to pick up our fourth Travel + Leisure award.

For the magazine’s World’s Best awards, readers are asked to rate airports on five characteristics; access, check-in/security, restaurants/bars, and shopping and design.

Receiving these awards is always an honor, and the entire PDX team gets the credit for the excellent customer service they provide each and every day to our passengers. Together, we give our airport its much-loved heart and character. Here’s to another great year at PDX!

“Kudos to the designers and the Port of Portland for an airport that is user-friendly, open, airy, and efficient,” wrote one survey taker. In addition to its navigability, PDX boasts an admirable on-time departure record — this airport is truly an extension of the city. You can order Middle Eastern fare from Aybla Grill and buy socks, bike helmets, and even yoga mats sporting the pattern found on the unforgettable carpet lining the terminals.
