Despite a 5.2 percent spike in passengers from 2011 to 2012—its third consecutive year of growth—Portland keeps security running smoothly with technologies like in-line baggage screening, implemented in 2010. Its 14.4 million annual travelers also enjoy an 87.5 percent on-time departure record and high-quality dining and shopping options that helped it earn the No. 1 spot among America’s Best Airports from T+L readers.
