SANTA ANA, Calif. – Effective Thursday, September 10, 2015, the US Airways ticket counter at John Wayne Airport (JWA) will be located in Terminal A, next to American Airlines. Passengers being dropped off, checking in luggage and needing assistance from a ticket agent should proceed to Terminal A on the Departures (upper) Level of the Thomas F. Riley Terminal.

US Airways Ticket Counter
The move of the US Airways ticket counter from Terminal B to Terminal A brings the two airlines one step closer to operating as American Airlines. This move will be followed by a complete transition of all US Airways flights and services to American Airlines, scheduled to occur on October 17, 2015. Information about the merger can be viewed at

As always, John Wayne Airport passengers can check in and print boarding passes prior to coming to the Airport, or utilize one of the many self-service kiosks in the Riley Terminal lobbies to print boarding passes. Passengers checking luggage will still need to visit the appropriate airline ticket counter, however those with only carry-on luggage can proceed directly to security screening. Passengers can use any of JWA’s three screening checkpoints to reach any gate in the Riley Terminal.


John Wayne Airport (SNA) is owned by the County of Orange and is operated as a self-supporting enterprise that receives no general fund tax revenue. The Airport serves more than nine million passengers annually and reaches more than 20 nonstop destinations in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
