    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.

    The bartender out side of security is from Vegas and he is great and makes great drinks
  • 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.

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

    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.

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

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