Hands down, one of the best airports in Orange County. It's a quick in and out. Luggage comes out fast. I wish there was a lounge there but I really can't complain. Amazing staff.
For years this has been my go to Airport! I love how quick and easy it is to go in and out of the parking lot. I know it isn't an international airport, but for domestic, it is easily the best airport ever. Parking has gone up but what hasn't gone up? I love that the parking lot is so close by. Like literally walking the stairs or taking the elevator and you're there to check on in. So quick to get in, short TSA lines. Highly, recommend this airport. One caveat if it's raining, you are going to get very wet. Baggage pickup is literally outside, clearly the airport isn't used to it either or it wouldn't be built that way. They have a few stores for food, snacks and drinks. A few sitting areas and clean restrooms. Also, bring your water bottles because they have those water stations.
So quick and easy to travel.
I absolutely love this airport! It's my first time here, and honestly I think from now on, if I can fly out of here, I will. It's much better than going to LAX. Everything is clean and well taken care of. My favorite is the outside area. I can easily take my dog out to relieve herself. In LAX, it's a mission to find somewhere for her to go, and the only one that I could find last time smelled heavily of dog urine. Long Beach is much more well kept, and family/people friendly. On top of that, everyone that works here is even more friendly. Way less people, which helps with anxiety. Check in is quick and easy as well. Just 1000x better than going to LAX. Also, Kudos to Taco Beach! Those breakfast tacos were so good and really hit the spot.
Great little airport! Only one terminal so pickups and drop offs are easy. Half the areas are outdoor because the weather is great year round. Plenty of restaurants and newspaper stands right at the terminal. They fly both Delta and Southwest airlines. A lovely experience I look forward to repeating.
I want to share our experience today at this amazingly kept secret, the Long Beach Airport. We drove from Riverside County to drop my elderly Aunt who is partially blind, my cousin who also has a challenge with walking to the airport to fly back to Texas. They had six heavy pieces of luggage, I was struggling trying to get them and the luggage in the terminal. This nice officer approached us and offered to get us a wheel chair, he helped my elderly aunt and push the chair all the way to check in. I pray the Lord bless this officer for going above and beyond his duty to help those in need.
LGB is a favorite of mine.
It's nostalgic because the original terminal building is intact, well preserved and functional.
It's also where I completed my flight training and earned my private pilot's license.
When flying anywhere, we avoid LAX whenever possible. Long Beach airport is easy to get in and out of, the parking is reasonable and close enough to walk to the terminal. The new terminals are nice with all the modern conveniences you'd expect to find.
This is the BEST Airport. It is small and so easy to navigate through. It's clean and just a great airport. It's very convenient for me to visit my family in Long Beach. Have been coming here for years. I refuse to fly into anywhere else!
Small airport but it gets the job done. You definitely avoid the lax traffic and you're in and out super fast. Most of the restaurants are still closed, and it's a bit pricey. They have a nice little open space for kids to run around as well.
Not too busy...quick, safe, efficient...
Small airport with easy access. We had an early flight and were happy to see the coffee kiosk open at 5:30. Another nice surprise was how good the coffee was! We parked in the B lot which is a short walk to the front door. Only $20 a day. This airport is much preferred over LAX if you want ease and convenience.
This airport has been so far the best . It's smaller than LAX and I think that makes it much better. It's fast and easy to get around. We landed @ 5:20 and by 5:40 I had my luggage that I had checked in. All in all in my experience it was fast and easy
Usually we fly into John Wayne aka Santa Ana but on occasion we will go to Long Beach Airport. It's a little farther to our final destination most times but it's a cool airport. I like the vibe of it and it feels retro. Once you are there it's easy to get in and out of the terminal. It's actually a pretty airport!
What a fun airport! I LOVED it because of the convenience of walking out and walking directly to the rental car place. This is what all airports should be like, small and convenient!
I enjoyed the outdoors portion. When I walked out, I thought I had already left the airport then quickly realized I was still in the airport facility, it was just uncovered and there were palm trees inside "this portion" of the airport.
Small, simple and efficient! ✔👍
