PDX Named Best Domestic Airport by Travel + Leisure

Travel + Leisure World's Best Awards 2018 readers' survey today recognized PDX as the Best Domestic Airport. This award is the sixth consecutive for PDX, winning from 2013-2018.

“The credit for this accomplishment goes to our Portland International Airport team—the more than 10,000 who always deliver the best travel experience you’ll find anywhere,” Curtis Robinhold, Port of Portland executive director said. “The caring spirit of our PDX team, served up with local restaurants and shops, gives PDX its much-loved heart and character, reflecting the very best our region offers.”

Here’s an excerpt from Travel + Leisure’s story: It may not be the newest or largest on this year’s list, but “user-friendly” PDX has garnered more than its fair share of enthusiastic fans — and not just for its famous #pdxcarpet. The airport excels in creating a smooth experience for travelers at every turn, from frustration-free security checkpoints (“TSA here is especially good,” said one reader) to affordable retail options minus the usual airport surcharges. Diversity of food and entertainment options — often with local flair — also contributes to its appeal. As one reader put it: “Where else can you sample local liquors, watch free short films, peruse Pendleton blankets, and enjoy a rotating art exhibit before a flight?”
