John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana (Orange County), Calif., recently completed a major revamp that has resulted in expanded parking facilities, new restaurants and lounges, modernized check-in kiosks, more power outlets to recharge laptops and cell phones, and displays of works by local artists. According to the Los Angeles Times, the $543 million project also created a new Terminal C, which joins existing A and B terminals and has its own short-term parking lot and customs area. The new construction adds 282,000 square feet to the airport, which will now be able to handle about 250 commercial flights per day, compared with 1,700 at LAX.
