    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!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    if you show up early, you can head upstairs and kill time on the outdoor viewing deck

    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

    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.

    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

    Bottled drinks inside security are approx. $1.90 which is cheaper than most of the bigger airports so grab your drinks before you leave. :-)

    Waiting area at Gate 5 has a lovely view of the fall colored trees and mountains for those who may not see them again for awhile.

    Nice small airport, if u want some VA souvinears, get @ shop near security entrance, as there's no place inside to get them.

    The market sandwiches and wraps are excellent in the morning but soggy by end of day!

    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.

    Parking: All lots are $8/day, so if you're there more than one day, park in short term, it's closer to the terminal!

    If you need to charge your phone, there are 8 desks with power outlets on the far end of the upper level.

    Always nice to have free airport wifi. The blue ridge kettle corn at the market is mighty tasty.

    Market closes at 7pm on Sundays. Don't count in eating dinner at this airport. Pick something up on way in or out - much better bet.

    I love the people here. Great airport, short lines, excellent service.

    If you're waiting at gate 5, there are desks with nice chairs & outlets by the window facing short term parking.

    Never use dulles. Come through charlottesville for anything south of DC! Much easier!

    Free wifi. You should only need to show up an hour early for your flight. It's a small airport with short lines.

    Small airport so you don't have to get there super early. Free wifi

    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.

    Come early to listen to Christian soft rock piping through the entire airport

    Coffee at the Market is priced be the cup size so go ahead and get a mocha.
  • Marcia (@marciamarcia) C.
    Big bag of Blue Ridge kettle corn from the newstand is the best anywhere. At $2.99 a bag, well worth a try!

    Small airport with one television on the first floor. Volume to low on it or don't like the channel? Controls are on the right side of the TV.

    Security here is much tougher on liquids/gels/lotions being screened separately than at larger city airports.

    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

    The good at the new bar is okay but better than before. It is a little pricey.
