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

    Complimentary coffee is always a plus!

    Lines are longest in the morning. Still only takes ~20 minutes

    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.

    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.

    Cheryl Lougie · May 21, 2013
  • Deborah R.

    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.

  • Patrick L.

    No porn scanner at cho. Nice to see that gone.

    Patrick Le Floch · February 17, 2013

    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

    Samantha Alleman · December 19, 2012

    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

    Doug S · November 19, 2012

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

    Ashleigh Edwards · November 18, 2012
  • Sasha F.

    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.

    Samantha · September 22, 2012

    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

    Ronnie A. · June 18, 2012
  • Max K.

    Go out on the patio up on the roof through gate 5

    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

    Craig Kennedy · February 17, 2012
  • Kimberly R.

    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!

    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.
