September 18, 2018 | For Travel Managers, For Travelers

Working in the corporate travel services industry, we undoubtedly have a lot of experience with terrific airports around the country. Although there are a lot of nightmare airports, we’ve put together a list on the top airports who have got it right when it comes to business travelers and their needs.

Las Vegas McCarran International (LAS)

You know you’re in McCarran when you step off the plane and are instantly greeted by slot machines and designated smoking areas. The airport’s close proximity to downtown Vegas is a major selling point here, while the average hotel price of $143 is incredibly low compared to other major international airports in the U.S. The airport’s Las Vegas American Express Centurion lounge was ranked as the best Centurion lounge in the US last year, so you can rest in comfort after a hard day’s work!

Charlotte Douglas International (CLT)

A favorite for both business and pleasure, Charlotte Douglas International is a favorite airport for passengers. CLT has been ranked as the best airport in the U.S. for parking, and a whopping 84.22% of arrivals were on time last year. Charlotte Douglas International is a major American Airlines hub, making it a favorite for business travelers flying frequent routes around the country.

Phoenix Sky Harbor International (PHX)

Phoenix Sky Harbor ranks well for its public transit options and is also an American Airlines hub, making it popular with corporate travelers. The airport has a high punctuality record, with more than 83% of flights arriving on time last year. The price of hotels in the area is also very reasonable, coming in at around $223. Affordable hotel rooms leave you plenty of spare money to spend on dining, as this airport is ranked as having the second-best dining options out of all the airports in the U.S.

Salt Lake City International (SLC)

Salt Lake City International might not be the most recognizable airport in the world, but it’s on-time flight arrivals rate is just below 86%. SLC offers free city tours to anyone with a layover of 2 hours or more, which is a fun, cheap way to spend a layover! SLC is about to have $3.6 billion pumped into it come 2020, so it may rise even higher in popularity for corporate travelers!
