    A small but mighty airport; you'll find Southwest, United, American, Alaska, and others here. Ease of travel getting in and out here is fast. However if you have car rentals; better call in advance!

    One of the best airports I've used. BEAUTIFUL terminal for a midsize airport, spacious interior and a fast trip. I checked in and was through TSA in less than 20 minutes. Great view of the runways too

    Parking is easy. Security is relatively fast. If you have a long wait, pinball is available in both concourses, and the Boise Library has an online reading room and e-book checkout.

    If you live in Boise and BUS runs near your house it is pretty convenient to get in and out of airport. A few feet from main lobby.

    Prepare for security when packing. Either check a bag with all liquids and gels or have your quart bag of travel size packed and easy to get out. Have large electronics easy to get out too.

    Boise has TSA Pre-Check! Keep your shoes, belt and jacket on plus leave your laptop in your bag. Awesome convenience!

    The Moxie Java downstairs (by C gates) has a bagel shop and more food options than the ones upstairs
  • Luke T.
    Pros: free WiFi, easy to find a place to sit, cleaner than most airports, fast security lines. Cons: not a lot of food/drink options and expensive to fly in and out of.

    Don't be a sheep. Exercise your right to learn the facts about airport screening technology and make your own informed decision whether or not to opt out.

    If your flight leaves before 6 am, make sure to get there extra early. Lines at security are stupid.

    Boise Airport has bicycle racks at each end of the lower (arrivals) level of the terminal so you can store your bike safely.

    Went to check in at the southwest counter and no one was working. Flight left at 6:05am, I arrived at 4:30 to a long line of people waiting for until the shift started at 5:00am.

    Bring ear plugs. The escalator has a high pitched squeak that resonates through the entire C gate area.

    If BOI is final destination then wait to use restroom until you go down to baggage claim to not have to wait in line.

    TSA allows ICE, but no liquid water. So freeze your water bottle before you arrive, then it will melt on the flight.
