SFO Wins Top Spot for US Airports in AFAR Travelers’ Choice Awards

Readers of the world’s leading travel media brand rank Airport as top in the nation for 2019

San Francisco International Airport (SFO) has been named the top airport in the United States by readers of AFAR, the world’s leading travel media brand. In their 2019 Travelers’ Choice Award, SFO was the winner in the “U.S. Airport” category, which also ranked international airports, airlines, and onboard products. AFAR cited SFO’s unique amenities, such as the Wag Brigade of certified therapy animals, and locally-sourced food & beverage concepts, such as Gott’s Roadside and Tartine Bakery.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be named the top U.S. airport in the AFAR Travelers’ Choice Awards,” said Airport Director Ivar C. Satero. “Our goal is to revolutionize the airport experience, and being honored by the experienced travelers who read AFAR is the ultimate validation of our efforts.”

The Travelers’ Choice Award is conducted annually and is now in its fourth year. While the Hospitality Group section previously covered only hotels and cruises, the 2019 awards now include air travel categories for the first time. Over 200,000 votes were cast for this year’s awards.
