    Rental car return is a very short walk to the ticketing area.

    I travel a great deal and this airport by far is the easiest and quickest one I've used, and yes, I fly into some pretty remote areas. Friendly staff, efficient process makes it a joy to use!

    The entrance to TSA is awesome with the huge water feature and tree. I always stop and enjoy, helps make me feel less rushed.

    Small airport. If you find yourself with time to kill, hang out by the waterfalls before security. You make your gate in plenty of time.

    Tiny airport. No food before security, so easy with loved ones before they fly outside the airport.

    Taking a taxi to or from the airport maybe cheaper than parking your car. (Go Taxi) $2/mile?

    Beautiful and quaint airport.

    Maybe a 30 minute delay wouldn't be so infuriating if the staff once apologized, acknowledged there even was a delay or moved with even the slightest sense of urgency. Thanks for nothing US Air.

    Nice small airport, but could use a few more GIDS. Kept having to leave my seat to see the display.

    Between 5-10 minutes are spent at security lane, even in the busiest day of this airport:)

    Pretty sure the airplane is right behind baggage claim, yet it takes 40 mins to get them going

    No premier access line and massive security lines. Way to dump on your frequent flyers.

    Security moves fast except around holidays!

    Good airport. It just takes a few minutes to get over the strip searches. Man I hate those.

    Jim Johnson · October 10, 2013

    TSA at McGhee Tyson Airport is amazing. They can move a line that stretches to the front door through security in 15 minutes. Bravo!

    This airport is superbly operated. No waiting and awesome amenities.

    Adrian Martínez Lara · September 16, 2013
  • Jill B.

    Love leaving an hour before my flight with a 30 minute drive & still getting through security with plenty of time to spare. It's small: if you have a delay/cancellation-CALL to get a flight changed!

    Jill B · September 15, 2013
  • Leigh R.

    Nicest TSA agents I've ever met and love the rocking chairs!
