America’s Best Airport Revealed

Turn’s out the world’s busiest airport is also the best—at least according to travel agents. USA Today reports on a survey taken by about 930 travel agents.

Drawing on their own experience, as well as feedback from their customers, the agents named Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport as the best in America. The airport earned high marks for amenities like a mini-spa and specialty shops, as well as for food and Wi-Fi access.

Chicago, America’s second busiest airport, also ranked high on the list, due to great options for amenities and world-class restaurants. However, the airport’s only good if you’ve got a lot of time to kill—O’Hare was conversely named America’s worst hub for connecting flights.

If you’ve got to run to your next flight, better hope you’re at Charlotte Douglas International Airport, which earned top marks as a connecting hub. If you’ve got family in tow, Orlando ranked high on the list for those traveling with kids.
