To maintain passenger traffic balance in the Thomas F. Riley Terminal and improve the John Wayne Airport (JWA) guest experience, Alaska Airlines moved its John Wayne Airport operations to Terminal B in June after previously operating out of Terminal A. Guests flying on Alaska Airlines at JWA will find their ticket counter, gates and baggage carousel in Terminal B. Alaska Airlines guests will retrieve their checked luggage at Baggage Carousel 3, and the Alaska Baggage Claim office is now located on the Arrival (lower) Level in Terminal B.
Alaska Airlines initiated service at John Wayne Airport in October 1987, and currently provides nonstop service between Orange County and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; Portland; Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; Reno/Tahoe; San Jose; San Francisco; Albuquerque; Santa Rosa/Sonoma; and Seattle.
JWA is currently served by seven major air carriers providing service to more than 20 nonstop destinations in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
