Alabama's largest airport serving the Greater Birmingham area and surrounding Southeastern cities. We offer more than 120 daily flights to over 25 cities throughout the United States.
Eat before you go through security as food choices are limited after security check.
Only need to be here an hour before flight. Not a busy airport.
Ur bags will take forever to come out.
No McDonalds in an airport? Tis true.
BHM got a starbucks, WOW!
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?
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
New chick fil a in Concourse B!
Eat first. Sorry selection of eateries ...
Birmingham tourism information can be found at the Information desk on the ground level near baggage claim. The Information desk can be reached at 599-0500.
Visit the new starbucks!
Watch out for hop-ons. You are gonna get some hop-ons.
Mortal Combat for Sega Genesis is the best video game ever.
Food behind security check is terrible and overpriced. Eat outside of checkpoint
Delta Base ATL but home sweet home for 7 years as a F/A Crown room nice view anyone welcome <3
Most airlines recommend that passengers arrive at the airport 60 to 90 minutes prior to departure.
The smallest airport I've been to so far, but the cool thing is they have free wifi throughout the whole airport. ✈
They are doing construction so all flights are going through one terminal right now so long security lines during peak times
The toilets are phenomenal. They don't smell like poop anymore.
During construction on Concourse B, all flights are on Concourse C. This makes the TSA screening slow. Be here at least an hour early.
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.
They now have TSA Pre. Life changing.
The airport has been renovated. Any tips prior to 2013 are no longer valid. That being said, local fare includes Jim and Nicks BBQ. If you have time, try their Pork plate for a taste of southern BBQ.
Of all the airports I've ever had to make a rapid descent, emergency landing at, this is the best. And the $6 meal voucher that Delta gave us covered half of the meal at Chick-Fil-A. Sweet!
If your flying out at 6am on a Monday be here early because the line is crazy long, to get through security!
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.
Did you use #BHM to travel during Easter weekend? Did we exceed your expectations? #BHM values your opinion, visit
worst airport ever!!
Rental cars are now in the parking garage
TSA = baggage handlers
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!
Starbucks coming to Gate C terminal very soon! Bout time!
The free WiFi is confusingly named "Port Authority LAN" but otherwise works perfectly.
Beautiful greenery art work on the concourse. It soothes my soul in a natural way.
Decent place, friendly staff
Most of these tips are outdated with the new concourse. Plenty to eat inside. Enjoy the free wifi and plentiful outlets.
If you are traveling into Birmingham for Empowerment Week, be sure to check out the many options for ground transportation:
The renovations are beautiful! Birmingham is really stepping it up. Make sure to stop by Jim N Nicks if you have time to eat! The catfish is the best!
The new concourse is very nice. It's a great improvement on the tired old BHM airport
If you're still craving BBQ there's a Jim'n'Nicks at the airport...you can even have pulled pork for breakfast!
The new section of the airport is really great. So modern!!
Try the new Good People bar in the airport. Excellent locally brewed beer.
The new terminal is half way finished & looks promising! Jim n Nicks BBQ is excellent!
The new terminal is beautiful!
