Here’s how large and ‘mega’ airports in the US fared in customer satisfaction survey

·2 min read

Consumer analytics firm J.D. Power has released its 2021 North American Airport Satisfaction Study, which ranks the largest airports based on passenger surveys.

The rankings, based on surveys from August 2020 through July 2021, look at airport performance in six categories: terminal facilities; airport arrival/departure; baggage claim; security check; check-in/baggage check; and food, beverage and retail.

J.D. Power divides airports into three categories based on passenger volume: medium, large and “mega.” The firm said it did not rank medium airports this year because of the lower passenger volumes during the coronavirus pandemic.
