The accolades the Long Beach Airport continues to receive seem endless as with great design comes great praise: Money magazine has named Long Beach’s center of aviation as one of the nation’s top five airports in terms of overall quality, timeliness, and price.

To determine the best airport, 1,425 data points—ranging from accessibility and security to food and shopping—for the 75 busiest airports in the country were analyzed. Coming out at Number 1 was Portland’s international airport; Long Beach sat at Number 3.
