2016-11-02 · By Editor
Long Beach Airport (LGB) has been named a Top 10 airport in the United States by readers of Condé Nast Traveler magazine for the third consecutive year, climbing three spots to No. 7 on the list. LGB enjoys a national reputation as a unique and innovative airport that provides a first-class experience for all travelers.
“As the gateway for thousands of visitors to our city every day, Long Beach Airport provides a unique and welcoming experience for travelers,” said Mayor Robert Garcia. “This recognition from Condé Nast Traveler confirms LGB’s stellar reputation is well deserved.”
Last year, readers voted Long Beach Airport No. 10 in the annual poll. This year, more than 300,000 people voted in the poll and LGB earned an overall score of 77.92, rising to the No. 7 position. Voters cited the nostalgic historic terminal that reminds them of the glamour of flying, as well as the Southern California ambiance of the passenger concourse, which makes LGB stand out compared to other airports.
“We are very honored to have been named to this venerated list,” said Airport Director Jess L. Romo, A.A.E. “This recognition is a reflection of how satisfied our customers continue to be when traveling through Long Beach Airport.”
The latest recognition from Condé Nast Traveler comes just as LGB is entering one of the busiest travel periods of the year, when travelers can truly appreciate the convenient environment, especially since large crowds and busy schedules are common at many other airports.
