Lines are longest in the morning. Still only takes ~20 minutes
Do not enter hungry.
Always nice to have free airport wifi. The blue ridge kettle corn at the market is mighty tasty.
Small airport so you don't have to get there super early. Free wifi
Make sure you eat before you come.. No restaurants just this little shop of nothings.. But the gate agents are very nice && helpful
Yes, it's a small airport, but that's welcoming for a number of travelers. Still, expect most long flights to involve a layover at a busier hub.
The market sandwiches and wraps are excellent in the morning but soggy by end of day!
if you show up early, you can head upstairs and kill time on the outdoor viewing deck
Small airport, but don't underestimate the security line. Recommend getting there 1 hour ahead. Sometimes 3 or so flights will take off around the same time, leading to congestion.
Great little store after you go through security but not much else.
I love the people here. Great airport, short lines, excellent service.
I love using this airport. No long lines.
Great potato salad at the market!
Our family was very happy to learn that Joshua from United Airlines works at this airport now. I have a disabled Mother that loves him so much. He makes you feel so happy and you can see he cares.
Rocking chairs on the upper level. Free wi-fi
All of the flights aren't on the monitors so for a first time flyer I got a bit panicky until the crew assured me I was at the right gate. Pretty small, clean, and efficient.
Daily parking rate has increased from $8/day to $10/day.
Nice small airport, easy to get to, should only need to arrive 1 hr before flight.
Small & efficient! Love it!! :)
Nice small airport, if u want some VA souvinears, get @ shop near security entrance, as there's no place inside to get them.
Do NOT be in a hurry to get off and get your bags here...the speed (or lack thereof) of the baggage claim is disproportionately SLOW compared to the size of the airport...ONE baggage carousel.
No porn scanner at cho. Nice to see that gone.
If you need to charge your phone, there are 8 desks with power outlets on the far end of the upper level.
Get here early if you have to check in a bag. 2 times I've had issues with them b/c of small ticketing staff. 1st time guy was on his smoke break, 2nd time the line made the check in 1 min after time
Nov2012: CHO says to arrive at least 90 min before 5-7AM departures for parking, ticketing and security (esp. over Thanksgiving). Terminal opens at 3:30AM; airline ticket counters open by 4:15AM
Security here is much tougher on liquids/gels/lotions being screened separately than at larger city airports.
Great sandwiches from the Market, but no restaurants. Airport is small and a breeze but don't come less than 30 minutes before your flight or they may not be able to take your bag! Love this place!
Very nice outside seating area at gate 5 with great views of the mountains.
Get the free WiFi, it's delish
Really nice people working throughout this airport
The store sells stale pastries and sandwiches bring your own.
TSA is very, very strict with liquids be sure they fit in the quart size bag.
As a frequent flyer, this is one of the best airports to leave out of (assuming your flight isn't delayed or canceled. If it is, good luck finding another flight.) No lines, friendly staff, free Wi-Fi
Go out on the patio up on the roof through gate 5
Nice small airport.
Attention rednecks: dip cans will set off the metal detector.
Tougher security than communist Russia.
Arrived 2.11p for 2.28p flight. Like flying private; love cho
You used to be able to get away with being at the airport 30 mins before a flight if you weren't checking luggage. The airport's gotten busier and now you need 45 mins min
I miss this place
Pick up a sandwich in the store, even if you'll be in another airport for lunch during a layover. Guaranteed its a better sandwich than you'll find at other airports! You'll be glad you thought ahead.
Try the airplanes!
At the airport with Allie and Jordan waiting for our flight to atlanta then to austin!
Avoid Delta...they are horrible!
Have a jacket in the winter. Think they're trying to save on their electric bill!
Try not to laugh at the so called police in there little security hut that gets them angry
Very small airport, so the whole process is a breeze.
Last United flight to Dulles leaves at 7pm weekdays.
Apparently delays are not uncommon here.
do not attempt a chat and cut. you will be shut down.
