    Eat before you go through security as food choices are limited after security check.

    Best airport in the world to come home to, but bummer taking off from because each terminal is secured, and then no Starbucks or drinks?

  • April S.

    This is the worst airport ever!!! No coffee - super slow wifi & bar area is combined with pizza hut & yogurt stand... Try to avoid layovers here at all costs

    Food behind security check is terrible and overpriced. Eat outside of checkpoint

    Most airlines recommend that passengers arrive at the airport 60 to 90 minutes prior to departure.

  • Jason F.

    The smallest airport I've been to so far, but the cool thing is they have free wifi throughout the whole airport. ✈

    The toilets are phenomenal. They don't smell like poop anymore.

    Drew S. · September 15, 2011
  • Brett S.

    During construction on Concourse B, all flights are on Concourse C. This makes the TSA screening slow. Be here at least an hour early.

  • Michael "Mayor" M.

    You can get here about an hour before flight. Easy in and out Airport

    Eat before coming through the gate. If you want anything standard like mcdonalds, you're out of luck.

    WiFi is very slow. I usually end up using my aircard.

    Concourse B has no food options, but it does have one tiny bar.

  • Tyler R.

    If your flying out at 6am on a Monday be here early because the line is crazy long, to get through security!

    Tyler R. · February 25, 2013
  • Crys M.

    Monday mornings are the only time I would suggest you get there an hour+ before your flight.

    Want to have a smooth transition through the TSA checkpoint? Each time TSA searches a carry-on it slows down the line. Practicing 3-1-1 will ensure a faster and easier checkpoint experience.

    They are doing construction so all flights are going through one terminal right now so long security lines during peak times

    TSA = baggage handlers

  • Mark K.

    Safety officer should be fired. No emergency lighting functioning during blackout. Obviously senior staff here more interested in getting paid than doing their job - shame on you all!

    The free WiFi is confusingly named "Port Authority LAN" but otherwise works perfectly.

    Concourse C has new Sam Adams bar. Pizza Hut and Quiznos are next door. It's better.

    If you drive through the arrival lane too many times a policeman may shoot his gun at you car.

    They close all the food at 6pm eat before you go or wait til you arrive at your destination!

    Take a picture of your luggage that you check. Makes it a snap to describe if gets lost.

    Frequent travelers- Leave extra time for security. No first class line, no Clear lane. They do have TSA Pre-Check.
