We are thrilled to announce that Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport has been recognized as the No. 1 Airport in the United States, according to the 2020 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards.

Condé Nast Traveler updates and guides travelers on the best places to visit across the globe, and every year the readers get to share their favorite travel experiences in the publication’s annual Readers’ Choice Awards. For more than three decades, readers have been weighing in on which hotels, cities, restaurants and airports they love most. Last year, Condé Nast Traveler had an impressive 600,000 voters participate in the survey.

According to the article, Savannah/Hilton Head International was ranked the best in the U.S because of its town square-inspired layout, inviting atmosphere, and local shopping and dining options.

For the fourth consecutive year, Condé Nast Traveler readers voted Hilton Head Island as the No. 1 island in the continental U.S. From its miles of beautiful beaches to its countless outdoor activities, Hilton Head Island remains a beloved destination by visitors year-after-year.

At Savannah/Hilton Head International, we are thankful and honored to be named the Best Airport in the U.S. and appreciate those who took the time to vote. To read more and to view the full list of this year’s winners, visit
