Airports can be a total hit or miss. Sometimes you breeze through security and have time to relax with a latte in hand before your flight, and other times you're straight-up in the Airport Hunger Games, tasked with aerodynamically breezing past potential obstacles (armed with your time-saving Mobile Passport app) and facing the unmissable ones head on (ugh, security) in order to win victoriously and arrive at your gate before the cabin door shuts. Well, worry no more: Below is a list of the 15 top-ranked airports in the country to make healthy travel easier than ever.

Money analyzed the top 80 airports in the US on factors like on-time arrivals, security delays, and amenities and came up with a list that not only gets you through the airport quickly, but also makes sure you're happy, healthy, and well-fed while you're there. The next time you're flying, cross your fingers you can breeze through one of these top picks, hopefully with enough time left to enjoy a kombucha and some pre-flight yoga.
