MHT Named One of the Top 10 Small Airports by USA TODAY

[MANCHESTER, NH] – October 13, 2023 – Manchester-Boston Regional Airport (MHT) has been named one of the top 10 small airports in the U.S. by USA TODAY’s 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards 2023. MHT secured sixth place this year, ranking as the highest New England airport on the list.

“MHT is honored to continue to be named one of the top airports in the country time and time again,” said Airport Director Ted Kitchens, A.A.E. “Our passengers, and USA TODAY’s readers, recognized MHT as a top small airport in the country, and we are grateful to them for their support. I also want to thank our employees and partners at the Airport for their hard work to make this kind of recognition possible—we couldn’t do it without you.”

According to USA TODAY’s 10Best website: “Operating in the southern reaches of New Hampshire, Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is a welcome alternative for any travelers that don’t feel like battling the endless traffic at Boston Logan International. The building is served by a variety of airlines ranging from Southwest to American, and there’s no shortage of New England beer and savory snacks to enjoy before a flight.”

MHT was nominated as a top 20 airport in September 2023 by USA TODAY’s panel of travel experts. Readers and passengers then had approximately one month to vote once a day for their top choice airport.
