John Wayne Airport encourages travelers to plan ahead and arrive at the Airport 1-½-to-2 hours prior to departure time for domestic flights, and 3 hours for international flights. This will allow time to comfortably park and complete the check-in and security screening process, and will ensure you’ll be at your gate in time to catch your flight. In the early morning you may require extra time due to the heavy travel volume. Our hotel is only 5 min drive from the airport!
