JOHN WAYNE AIRPORT CELEBRATES NATIONAL TRAVEL AND TOURISM WEEK; UNVEILS COLLECTIBLE TRADING CARD
SANTA ANA, Calif. – As part of National Travel and Tourism Week and in conjunction with U.S. Travel Rally Day, John Wayne Airport (JWA) will debut its first ever trading card. The “SNA” card reflects JWA’s official airport code and is part of the North American Airport Collectors Series™, which was created to offer aviation enthusiasts a unique collectible to commemorate their travels through U.S. and Canadian airports.
On Tuesday, May 5, JWA employees will distribute the new SNA trading card to passengers on selected flights. Two airports, Minneapolis-St. Paul and Salt Lake City, will hand out their own trading cards to passengers arriving from Orange County. JWA is encouraging passengers to take pictures of themselves with their SNA trading card and share them on social media using #AirportCards.
“Orange County is the perfect place to highlight National Travel and Tourism Week,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Todd Spitzer. He continued, “Our community welcomes a remarkable 42 million visitors annually, who spend $7.75 billion and help support 160,000 jobs – tourism is a powerful and important engine that helps drive Orange County’s economy.”
