PORTLAND, Ore. — After being named the best airport in the United States for seven straight years, Portland International Airport dropped to No. 2 in this year’s rankings by Travel + Leisure magazine.

The magazine revealed its annual list of top 10 U.S. airports on Wednesday. Magazine readers rated airports based on access, check-in/security, restaurants/bars, shopping and design.

PDX may have lost its crown this year, but its score was less than a point behind the winner: Indianapolis International Airport.

Indianapolis was No. 2 in last year's rankings.

“PDX is far and away the best airport I have flown through,” one reader told the magazine. “Extremely easy to navigate, signage is wonderful, and you can find anything you are looking for very easily. Customer service staff is wonderfully helpful.”

The magazine noted that this years airport ratings were compiled before the COVID-19 pandemic and stay-home orders began. The survey closed on March 2.

No other airports on the West Coast made the magazine’s top 10. Click here for the full list.
