John Wayne Airport Car Rental

John Wayne Airport Car RentalJohn Wayne Airport (IATA code SNA) is an airport in Orange County, California, with its mailing address in Santa Ana. Other nearby cities include Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, and Irvine. Originally named Orange County Airport, the county Board of Supervisors renamed it in 1979 to honor actor John Wayne, who lived in nearby Newport Beach and died that year. It became the first airport to be named after an entertainer.

Below is some information on John Wayne Airport, sourced from Wikipedia:

The main runway, at 5,701 feet (1,738 m), is one of the shortest of any major airport in the United States, resulting in most passenger aircraft operating from the airport to be no larger than the Boeing 757. However, some larger cargo aircraft, such as the FedEx A310/300, fly from SNA. Some gates are built to handle planes up to the size of a Boeing 767, which can operate with payload/fuel load restrictions. No widebody passenger aircraft are currently in scheduled service at the airport.

John Wayne Airport is the sole commercial airport within Orange County. General aviation operations outnumber commercial operations and several facilities at the airport serve the general aviation and corporate aviation community. The other general aviation airport within the county is Fullerton Municipal Airport. Other commercial airports within close proximity are Long Beach Airport, followed by Los Angeles International Airport and LA/Ontario International Airport. In 2008, John Wayne Airport was the second busiest airport in the area (by passenger count) with almost 9 million total passengers.

John Wayne Airport is 14 miles (23 km) from Orange County's signature attraction - Disneyland. Los Angeles International Airport is 35 miles (56 km) from Disneyland.
