LITTLE ROCK, ARk. (KTHV) - Little Rock's Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport has been named the worst in the country, according to Travel + Leisure magazine.
The study took into account six key factors: flight delays; design; food and drink; shopping; check-in; and location.
In regards to the Clinton airport, Travel + Leisure stated:
"Travelers of all stripes gripe about the Little Rock airport's security lines, which have made local headlines for wait times that can stretch to an hour. It also scored poorly for check-in, delays, design, food, and shopping. In part, the results may simply reflect the fact that this is a small airport, with no airline clubs and barely a handful of stores and restaurants. It does deserve kudos for providing free Wi-Fi."
In response to this study, Shane Carter, Director of Public Affairs for Clinton National Airport said:
"Travel and Leisure magazine hasn't released many details to us about the survey. However, we feel like we've had some bad luck as the survey was done between December of last year and April of this year during our massive construction project. It was pretty messy out here as the terminal was in operation during construction so there were times unfortunately when passengers were inconvenienced and not as comfortable as we would have liked. Overall, it's a different place now as we've finished our $67 million construction project. We'd love to have Travel and Leisure readers to be able to survey us again.
