    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.

    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!

    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.

    Bring your meal up to the 2nd floor observation deck to get away from the noise and enjoy the view while u relax.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    Bathrooms by Gate A1 is super clean and fresh smelling. For early flight departures it was surprising to see so many food venues open. This was very helpful.

    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.

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

    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.

    Friendly and efficient service all around. Try the green chicken chile soup at terminal A-B... it lives up to its famous reputation!

    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"

    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.

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

    Today's public service announcement: if you in boarding group 4 you don't need to be in line or in close proximity to the line while they are boarding group 2. Thank you.

    Check out the Observation Deck between A gate & B gate wings. Big windows comfortable seats & great view of the airfield.

    One of the fastest airports in the USA. Love that you can arrive 30 minutes before a flight and still make it.

    It's called "Sunport" for a reason: happiness greets you as you enjoy short lines, lots of charm, and lots of character.

    Any of the chaplains at the Albuquerque International Sunport are ready to help people with any spiritual needs, including contacting local spiritual leaders or joining them in the Meditation Room.

    Before your next flight, grab a cup of green chili chicken stew and a green chili roll from Black Mesa Coffee, next to A9!
  • Courtney L.
    Hit up Black Mesa Coffee next to A8. The Caramel Latte is delicious and all the staff are super friendly!

    If you look past the outdated furniture and decor you can appreciate the Sunport for it's awesome food, small size, and ease of dealing with the TSA! :)

    Weight restrictions happen often in the summer due to field elevation and surrounding terrain. Be patient and kind to the customer service folks if this happens to your flight...they don't like being

    Priority Access is a sham here! I could've been 20 people ahead if I was in the regular line! If the PA line is the same length as the others you'll reap no benefits

    Nice little airport. Easy in an easy out. If you need a cab, make sure you check out the shuttle van first. Ask at the information booth.

    If you want to get a cab which takes credit card, call Bob - 505-440-8765. Not all of them accept credit cards, and Bob was very helpful!

    Quiet place to wait for a flight. The elevator is a little slow, but worth the wait if you have a lot of luggage.

    1st and/or last place to get your green chile fix in. Great breakfast burritos if you are there in the morning.

    If you travel with a child the TSA is so nice and will let you go through the employee line and help you maneuver you to the gate!

    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.

    Free, decent wifi--just turn on your device. Black Mesa Coffee at the end of concourse A is quite good.

    So easy to go in and out of Sunport. Cheap gas within a few blocks of the airport, and the folks at Enterprise RAC are the nicest. Running late? They will drive you to the terminal?

    Despite its name, you can neither travel to the sun nor travel on the sun from here. A little misleading, IMO.
