TripAdvisor calls MSP one of the nation's best airports for multiple reasons


TripAdvisor says Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport is one of the top five large airports in the U.S. for multiple reasons.

The travel website released its picks for the 2016 Travelers’ Choice Favorites awards earlier this week.

More than 114,000 people participated in the top airports survey which was sent out to the TripAdvisor community.

The resulted were used to calculate the five most popular airports in four categories: large airports, medium airports, best dining, best shopping.

And MSP made every list except for top medium-size airports.

Check out how MSP ranked below:

Top 5 large airports

  1. Portland International Airport
  2. Tampa International Airport
  3. MSP International Airport
  4. Salt Lake City International Airport
  5. Detroit Metropolitan Wayne Country Airport

Top 5 airports for dining

  1. Portland International Airport
  2. MSP International Airport
  3. Dallas Love Field Airport
  4. Tampa International Airport
  5. Seattle-Tacoma International Airport

Top 5 airports for shopping

  1. Portland International Airport
  2. Pittsburgh International Airport
  3. MSP International Airport
  4. Orlando International Airport
  5. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport

The only other airport to appear on the lists three times is Portland International. It came in at the number one slot each time.

“MSP Airport has received many accolades over the years, but ranking 2nd or 3rd in all categories for which we were eligible is particularly satisfying,” Brian Ryks, CEO of the Metropolitan Airports Commission, said in a statement to Aviation Pros.
