The votes are in! In a recent survey conducted by the Travel Leaders Group, nearly 1,000 travel agents voted on the best US airport and placed Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International in the top spot. With airport amenities like specialty shops and mini-spas, it's easy to understand why travelers wouldn't mind spending a few hours in America's busiest hub.
In addition to claiming the coveted title of Best Airport in the US, Atlanta scored highly in several other categories such as dining options and best Wi-Fi. Hartsfield-Jackson can also boast providing the smoothest connecting flight experience - no easy feat to accomplish in the most highly-trafficked airport in the US. The location is even ranked #1 for providing the best services for business travelers.
Other locations claiming top honors include:
- Minneapolis-St. Paul for its fantastic restaurants and amenities.
- Charlotte, coming in second for a smooth flight connection.
- Orlando for its plethora of things to do, which is great for the many families with children that pass through here.
- Dallas/Fort Worth for its multitude of business services.
With creature comforts becoming the top priority for airports in the know, diverse dining options and luxury amenities (such as golf greens) will be seen more and more in the terminals of popular flight destinations.
