Long Beach, CA – For the second consecutive year, Long Beach Airport (LGB) is among the Best Airports in the United States, based on votes by readers of Condé Nast Traveler magazine. Ranking eighth nationwide, LGB continues to be a favorite among travelers who recognize its convenient Southern California location, exemplary amenities and first-class customer experience.

“Every day, our award-winning airport gives visitors an amazing first impression of our city,” said Long Beach Mayor Rex Richardson. “Our Airport is celebrating its 100th anniversary this fall, and LGB has a long history of knowing how to provide a first-class experience for travelers.”

The award comes as LGB just this year celebrated the unveiling of its consolidated Baggage Claim, and the completion a year prior of a new, modern Ticketing Lobby and Checked Baggage Inspection System (CBIS), which have made the travel experience even smoother from curb to gate as part of a major $122 million Phase II –Terminal Area Improvement Program.

“Long Beach Airport, in its centennial year, is so proud to again be recognized and appreciated by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler magazine for its calm, cool and convenient service,” said Airport Director Cynthia Guidry. “I believe LGB is the coolest airport in the country, and this achievement is a testament to that and how all of our business partners and staff help ensure Long Beach continues to deliver the best passenger experience.”

Air carriers at Long Beach Airport—including Southwest Airlines, Delta Air Lines and Hawaiian Airlines—currently offer service to 24 nonstop destinations around the nation, which is more nonstop service than at any time in LGB’s nearly 100-year history.

The other airports named in the Condé Nast Traveler magazine are available online.
