INDIANAPOLIS -

Indianapolis International Airport has landed yet another accolade. The airport is ranked among the 10 best domestic airports in Travel + Leisure Magazine's "World Best Awards for 2017."

The publications readers determined the ranking by rating airports based on services, including access, check-in, security, restaurants, bars, shopping and design. Indianapolis International Airport is ranked second on the list, behind only Portland International Airport in Oregon.

"When travelers are happy, we’re happy," said Mario Rodriguez, executive director of the Indianapolis Airport Authority. "Customer feedback is our most important metric, and awards like this affirm what we’re doing right and give us some good insights how to keep growing that customer satisfaction."

Following the Indy airport on the list are Tampa International in Florida, John Wayne Airport in California and Austin-Bergstrom International in Texas. You can connect to the full list by clicking here.

The award follows a number of accolades Indianapolis International Airport has earned over the past year. In March, the airport was named Best Airport in North America by the Airport Service Quality Awards. In December, J.D. Power ranked Indy number one in customer satisfaction among medium-sized airports.

The airport also topped the U.S. domestic airport category for the third consecutive year in Condé Nast Traveler's annual Reader's Choice Survey in October.

ITAMCO began as a dream of my uncle Donald Neidig and my father Noble Neidig to have their own business.
