For the eighth time, PDX has received Travel + Leisure magazine’s America’s Best Airport award.
The magazine’s readers praised its overall design, its amenities, its accessibility and its cleanliness. “It has such a wide variety of stores, eateries, and shops, many of which heavily feature local businesses and artists,” said one respondent. Voters were so enthusiastic about PDX that it seemed some were even hoping for a delay on their next trip. “I wish I were there right this minute,” said one fan. Read the full review.
“We are humbled to receive this recognition from Travel + Leisure magazine during such a difficult time for airports across the country,” said Curtis Robinhold, Executive Director, Port of Portland.
“We believe this award is a result of the dedication of PDX employees. Throughout the pandemic, the 2020 wildfires and the 2021 winter storms, PDX employees continued to bring smiles, cheer and the best customer service in the business to travelers. The Port of Portland is deeply appreciative of the PDX frontline workers who continued to show up and work under difficult circumstances.”
Employee-focused pop-up events are planned from Sept. 13-18 to thank and celebrate the hard work of more than 10,000 employees who work at PDX.
