1 airport

Headed from Dallas Love Field to Santa Ana's John Wayne Airport? Nonstop service is available from Southwest, and the flight takes about three hours. Lots of other flights with one or two stops are available, but you'll want to be careful in selecting these as many will take you on a journey of 10 hours or more, sometimes going entirely in the wrong direction (like to Atlanta) before turning around and making for California. The best one-stop flight options from Love Field take you to San Francisco International first and only add a few hours to the trip.

Facilities at Santa Ana John Wayne Airport

Santa Ana John Wayne is the central airport serving Orange County, and it's located to the south of Santa Ana and just west of Irvine (not far from the University of California Irvine campus). Anaheim is about a 30 minute drive to the north, Long Beach is roughly the same distance to the west, and add on another 30 minutes past Long Beach to get to downtown Los Angeles.

If you want to use public transit, the iShuttle connects passengers to the Tustin Metrolink Station, the local aboveground rail line which goes west to LA and east to San Bernardino. Disneyland visitors can also avail themselves of the Resort Express bus, which picks up from the Ground Transportation Center. If you'd prefer a rental car, most of the major chains are either present at the Ground Transportation Center or have shuttles available to their locations just outside the airport.

Looking to grab a bite after your flight? Each terminal has a decent mix of restaurants including McDonalds, Starbucks and Ruby's Diner. The pre-security area also has a La Tanenade Meditteranean Cafe and a Zov's Bistro.

Some unique things to check out in this airport include the nine-foot bronze John Wayne statue and the aluminum bird sculptures suspended above the Terminal C baggage carousels. The JWA Community Focus Space also hosts rotating exhibits by local artists.

Things to Do Near Santa Ana John Wayne Airport

Santa Ana John Wayne Airport is situated near the Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve and the Strawberry Farms Golf Club, both great places to stretch your legs and get some physical activity in after a long flight. Newport Beach is a short drive down Route 55 from the airport, and Huntington Beach is also close by. And of course Anaheim is home to not just Disneyland, but also Adventure City.
