SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - Ride-sharing companies Uber and Wingz have been issued permits to begin picking up passengers at Orange County’s John Wayne Airport - one of the first large Southern California airports to allow the service.

The Los Angeles Times reports (https://lat.ms/1GcMDC5 ) the pickups began this week.

The newspaper says Uber and Wingz were first to apply for permission to collect passengers at the airport under a new operating permit approved by county supervisors.

Drivers for Uber and another service, Lyft, were already permitted to drop off customers. And premium ride services like UberBLACK and UberSUV were also previously cleared to make pick-ups under a different operating permit.

John Wayne is the third-busiest commercial airport in Southern California.
