Pensacola International Airport has been named one of America’s 10 Best Small Airports, securing the ninth spot in USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards.


This recognition follows a month-long voting period, in which both residents and visitors showed their support for Pensacola International Airport. The awards highlighted airports serving fewer than 10 million passengers annually, while exceling in commercial flight offerings, ease of access and amenities.

“This recognition reflects the unwavering dedication of our airport team to this community, and the trust our community places in Pensacola International Airport,” Pensacola Mayor D.C. Reeves said. “We may not have the biggest airport, but we always strive to be the best — and this award validates those efforts.”

Pensacola International Airport was chosen among 79 small airports nationwide. A panel of experts which included editors from USA Today and 10Best.com, as well as other contributors from Gannett media properties, selected the top 20 airports. The final ranking was determined through a month-long public vote.

“To be named among the nation’s best small airports confirms our team’s dedication to excellence,” Airport Director Matt Coughlin said. “Every day, we strive to provide top-tier experiences for our travelers. We thank our community and passengers for their continued trust and support.”

Upholding its “Fly Easy” promise, Pensacola International Airport remains committed to offering a stress-free and unparalleled travel experience. As a gateway to the Gulf Coast, the airport exemplifies the region’s vibrant growth and future potential with a relaxed, comfortable feel.
