Condé Nast Readers Name Indy Airport Best Airport in United States -- Again

Award marks the sixth consecutive year Indy airport earns top title

INDIANAPOLIS (Oct. 7, 2019) – Condé Nast Traveler has named the Indianapolis International Airport (IND) as the Best Airport in the United States for the sixth straight year. This award was given to the Indy airport based on the feedback of more than half a million Condé Nast Traveler readers from across the globe as a part of its 32nd Annual Readers’ Choice Awards.

The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry and are commonly known as “the best of the best of travel.”

"Condé Nast, J.D. Power, Travel + Leisure -- these honors are collectively based on feedback from hundreds of thousands of travelers," said Indianapolis Airport Authority Executive Director Mario Rodriguez. "They each reinforce -- on an international level -- the fact that Indianapolis is home to the best airport in North America and the United States, and that attracts some very positive outcomes, like more nonstop flights, additional airlines, conferences and conventions, businesses that want to relocate here and grow here, and federal and state grant funding. These are all economic drivers that ultimately create jobs, opportunity and prosperity for the people of this community."

Condé Nast readers rated airports on a variety of topics including, food and beverage choices, retail options, Wi-Fi and ease of connections, among others.

In addition to the Best Airport in the United States title from Condé Nast, the Indy airport has also been recognized by Travel + Leisure Magazine and J.D. Power. Travel + Leisure Magazine listed the Indy airport high on their list of favorite domestic airports in the magazine’s 2019 World’s Best Awards. J.D. Power recently named the Indy airport the highest-rated medium-sized airport in North America for passenger satisfaction according to their 2019 North America Airport Satisfaction Survey, where the Indy airport was cited for their outstanding terminal facilities.

The airport will be recognized in the November issue of Condé Nast Traveler magazine and a full list of winners is available at
