WARWICK, RI – The Rhode Island Airport Corporation proudly announced today that Condé Nast Traveler Magazine has named T. F. Green Airport one of the top 10 airports in the United States through their Readers’ Choice Award Survey for 2017.
“We could not be more pleased with this recognition because it is based on feedback from travelers around the globe who have flown into and out of T.F. Green Airport. It is validation from users of the airport that we are heading in the right direction,” said Iftikhar Ahmad, president and CEO of the Rhode Island Airport Corporation.
The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are one of the longest-running and most prestigious recognitions of excellence in the travel industry. The Readers’ Choice Awards were announced yesterday and will be featured in the November issue of Condé Nast Traveler, which will be on newsstands nationwide October 24, 2017.
In their announcement Condé Nast Traveler stated “Providence, R.I.’s airport gets kudos from fliers as a “great little airport” that’s easy to reach and to navigate: Almost two-thirds of New England’s population lives within a 75-minute drive of the airfield. Long known for its budget flights—it’s a Southwest Airlines stronghold—last year it saw an exponential increase in international service, with Norwegian Air launching non-stops to six destinations in Ireland, the U.K., and Norway. New flights to the French Caribbean begin this fall.”
This is the 30th year that Condé Nast Traveler has asked participants to rate airports, airlines, hotels and travel destinations. This year, more than 300,000 people participated in their Readers’ Choice Awards Survey.
