Power North America Airport Satisfaction Study. This marks the sixth time that IND has claimed this honor, reaffirming its commitment to providing an outstanding airport experience for travelers.

J.D. Power Recognizes Excellence in Customer Satisfaction

The J.D. Power North America Airport Satisfaction Study is widely regarded as a benchmark for measuring traveler satisfaction based on customer feedback. For this year's study, over 27,000 surveys were completed by U.S. and Canadian residents who had traveled through at least one U.S. or Canadian airport between August 2022 and July 2023. Travelers evaluated their experiences at departing or arriving airports during round-trip journeys.

Top Marks in Key Categories

IND excelled in several critical categories that significantly impact the overall traveler experience. The airport earned top scores in airport arrival/departure, security checks, terminal facilities (including concourses, lounges, signage, restrooms, and gate areas), as well as food and beverage and retail options. These outstanding scores contributed to IND's impressive overall customer satisfaction score of 843 out of 1,000, making it the highest-rated medium-sized airport in the study.
