    At the center of the concourse between concourse A and B go upstairs (elevator or stairs) to discover a gem. A huge room with couches, tables, chairs, multiple wall outlets and the best view.

    There is a nice little lounge upstairs with comfy chairs, a nice view if the airfield and, most importantly, power plugs. The plugs are located in the lower level of the lounge by the windows.

    My fave airport bc: fastest and nicest TSA ever, free wifi, good coffee, food court has green chile stew, and it's not too huge.

    We actually like Windows 98 American Southwest theme here, very thorough. More than that - the quantity of outlets is amazing! Power Up!

    I travel a great deal and out of the airports I frequent ABQ has the most efficient TSA lines. This airport also offers free WiFi which is great on those longer layovers.

    Mark F. says Santa Fe is the only thing to do in the area. Taos, Sandia Peak, and Sandia Crest are pretty amazing, however. If you ski/snowboard, it's oftentimes better than California!

    Great find: need to use a credit card for a cab from the airport to a hotel? Call Bill the Cabbie at 505-328-5566. $20 minimum which covers the fare and tip to most hotels. And, his cab is clean.

    Very small airport but great trinkets in the gift store. I love various cultures and ethnicities so thought it was pretty interesting to see such cool Native American figurines.

    Such a well organised airport. I agree the most efficient security check in the US. When you land here you know you are not just anywhere. Pueblo revival style. Love the art work.

    Fun little airport...remember the rental car area is not connected to the airport. If you have time, eat at Los Cuates, great food! Fast security lines.

    Quite possibly the easiest "get in, get done" major airport in the USA. Very "New Mexico" feel, extremely close parking, fast TSA lines, friendly staff, and only 15 minutes from downtown!

    Nice airport. Great decor. Standard places to eat. What is so different about this airport is the incredible courteous and cheerful TSA officers, not common at all. Good example for other airports.

    Shortest and most efficient TSA lines in human history, free wi-fi throughout the airport, and lots of post-security food/drink/shop options... The airport may be old, but its very accommodating!

    If you're going to Santa Fe, then make a reservation for a massage and private bath at Ten Thousand Waves Spa. Very affordable and if you're lucky you cam hot tub while it's snowing.

    Easy in & out little airport one terminal for all airlines. Quick shuttle to car rentals. Fill up before u return or they will charge $93.00 for 1/2 tank of gas . Nearest gas station is on Gibson.

    Remember. if the plane explodes in a giant fireball and everybody dies. (Except for you) You know why? It's "Cause You had you had your tray table up, and your seat back in the full upright position"

    TSA lines are quick and efficient, and the coffee and green chile are delish. The decor shows the southwest roots clearly.

    The people who think this is the nicest mid sized airport in US have never been to West Palm Beach. Shorter lines, cleaner, and a putting green in terminal.

    Very small airport but they have a good food options. Go to the upstairs lounge in between concourses A and B you'll be able to find large relaxing lounge chairs and a lot more plugs.

    Should time permit park in the Aircraft Viewing Area just east of the airport and watch the planes come n go. Shameless fun, plus, if you have children, they may get a kick out of it.
