Green Airport gets high marks in Travel + Leisure poll


Travel + Leisure readers have once again voted T.F. Green Airport one of the best airports in the country. This is the third time in the last five years, including 2009 and 2010, the airport has been privileged with this notable recognition. 

Ranked first for its accessible location and second for its smooth check in process, Green has risen to fourth overall in the airport category. Travel + Leisure readers were asked to rate 68 domestic airports in eight categories ranging from business or family travel, flight delays and design to food and drink, shopping, check-in and location. With its central location and easy highway access, the airport is a favorite of business and leisure travelers alike. 

Travel + Leisure’s Everett Potter pointed out, “Travelers appreciate smaller airports like Rhode Island’s T.F. Green Airport for the smooth check-in process and efficient layout.”

As in the previous selections, Green is the only airport in New England to be recognized in the top 10. In 2009, Travel + Leisure’s readership voted Green as one of the country’s best airports, ranking number 6 overall. In 2010, readers voted Green as first in on-time performance, first in staff efficiency and second in functional design.  

The honor comes at a time when Green Airport passenger numbers are on a six-month upswing and an Airport Improvement Program is underway to enhance safety areas and extend the length of the primary runway in order to accommodate larger aircraft and new service.
