John Wayne Airport
2020 Annual Report

Weathering Today, Prepared for Tomorrow

At John Wayne Airport, the safety and security of our guests and employees is always our top priority. During 2020, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic was felt deeply as air travel around the world came to a near halt. Passenger traffic was the lowest during the pandemic in April with approximately 500 passengers per day, a decrease of 97% compared to 2019.

Our efforts turned to quick responsiveness, implementation of health and safety initiatives, and immediate measures to minimize the financial impact and address tenant sustainability. We’re proud of our efforts, and will continue practicing outstanding stewardship and doing all we can to safely serve our guests and community in the weeks and months ahead.
