Huntsville International in contention to be named country’s ‘Best Small Airport’
USA Today is looking to name its Readers’ Choice Best Small Airport of 2020, and your vote could help put Huntsville International Airport over the top.
A panel of experts picked the top 20 small airports in the United States to contend for this honor.
Members of the public are currently voting on their favorite out of those 20, and, as of Monday at noon, Huntsville International ranked third.
Here’s how USA Today described the competition:
While giant airports like JFK, LAX and Chicago O’Hare often dominate the travel scene due to the sheer number of passengers who pass through them each day, the United States is home to many smaller, friendlier airports that take some of the headache out of travel. These 20 airports serve fewer than 10 million passengers each year, yet excel with their commercial flight offerings, easy access and amenities. Vote once per day until polls close on Monday, January 13 at noon ET. The 10 winning airports, determined by your vote, will be announced on Friday, January 24.
USA Today’s experts described Huntsville International as “small and easy to navigate, with an onsite hotel and a nice range of food and beverage options for an airport of its size.”
“Delta, American, United, Silver Airways and Frontier all fly into this small Alabama airport with nonstop service to 10 major destinations across the country,” they advised.
