Orange County, John Wayne Airport Mini Guide

John Wayne Airport is the largest airport in the Orange County area of California and it deals with more than 9 million annual passengers. John Wayne Airport has the airport code SNA because it is in Santa Ana County. Although it was originally known as Orange County Airport, the name was changed in 1979 in honor of the great Western movie actor. The car rental company desks are against the wall of the arrivals hall and easily spotted with their illuminated signs.

The airport is served by domestic and international routes from Canada and travellers from Europe will have to travel to Chicago or Denver before making a connection. For visitors intending to go to Disneyland, John Wayne Airport is much closer than the usual choice, Los Angeles International so making it an excellent pickup point for a Rental Car.
