    All the stores and restaurants close at 8:30pm. Plan ahead for later flights or get stuck hungry.

    The airport from first glance is very nice, but you can tell that the owners of the airport are penny pinchers. They make you take your bags to be screened in an different area than where you check in

    Small airport, 12 gates. Lots of food choices. Very clean. Nicely remodeled. Check out the Ruby Tuesday's.

    Really tiny airport. But you know what? That's a good thing! Compact and self sufficient with plenty of plug points and seating. It can get noisy though as all the gates are located in one location

    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.

    FYI... Yes this airport is small. But if your leaving on a flight between 4:30AM and 7AM.. and think you can make your flight checking in late your going to be in for a shock. Get to the airport ASAP!

    All these previous tips are correct. But for earlier mid week flights the lines can get LONG for security, give yourself a little longer then you would think those mornings.

    Achtung wenn man mit viel Gepäck reist. Die Flugzeuge sind oft zu klein um alles zu befördern. Das Personal ist sehr bemüht zu helfen, aber man muss sich trotzdem auf Einschränkungen einstellen.
