Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, dubbed as America's Friendliest Airport, is the main airport serving the Greater Phoenix area. It serves more than 40 million passengers a year, and goes to more than 100 domestic and international destinations, making it one of the 10 busiest airports in the nation. With about 1,200 daily flights - about 500 nonstop - Sky Harbor is one of the most convenient airports.
Sky Harbor is the only airport in the country with hubs for two major low-fare carriers (US Airways and Southwest Airlines), which is one of the reasons its average round-trip airfare has been below the national average for the past 13 years. Once at the airport, passengers enjoy free Wi-Fi at every terminal and public space.
New food concepts are currently being added to Terminal 4 for travelers to enjoy the flavors of local Phoenix restaurants and chefs.
