The mission of the Kalamazoo|Battle Creek International Airport is to provide facilities and services to support safe, efficient, and convenient air transportation, enhancing economic growth and high quality of life in Southwest Michigan.
Not sure why its "Int'l" but you can check-in 30-45mins prior to ✈️ with plenty of time. Very convenient loc but limited services so expect delays, cancellations (esp in winter!), hunger/thirst.
Very small airport, but nicely kept and renovated. You certainly do not need to arrive 2 hours in advance; AZO's website recommends 75 mintues.
Great food and brews at the Radar Bar. Easy Peasy airport.
Delta airlines was extremely helpful when my flight was delayed this morning. They answered all of my questions. Also every person we interacted with was friendly and in a good mood.
Fast checkin and security. Great airport.
Don't take the highway for airport. If you prefer taxi the best way is through downtown.
The place is like abandoned. The taxi fares are really high.
Free wifi but it's unusably slow.
I have only had one flight leave here on time in all the times I've flown out of here. Plan your connections accordingly.
Nice friendly airport
For those that think our airport is jokishly small: I just saw a guy remote start his car from the escalator. #winning.
Tiny airport, don't need much ahead time :)
If you expect your flights to arrive & depart on time, don't fly out of Kalamazoo
It's never taken me longer than 5 minutes to get from curbside to my gate. (With preprinted boarding passes) The security is always super pleasant too.
The 2-step doors at the exit ensure that no one can walk in this way; at other airports, this is a TSA employee. Walk up to activate, wait inside, depart. Then laugh at all the ppl who get stuck.
Yummy granola and berries parfait at the gates
These are the most ridiculous doors I have ever seen. Whats the point? "Door closing please wait."
The security gate doesn't open til about 45 min before the first 6am flight so don't fret about a 2 hour early arrival. Get in quick, get out quick. Good place to fly from.
What is up with the stupid security doors. Kazoo is a hot spot for expected terrorism?
The 2-step exit doors are really annoying, the more you are rushing to get through, the longer you have to wait for it to open, so step back and think serenity now serenity now...not open sesame!
As a flight attendant, I LOVE flying in and out of here! Everyone is so incredibly nice, employees and passengers. Thanks!!
No backscatter or millimeter waves = No need to opt out
Water only 4.25 per bottle
No food anywhere! Have to wait for the gates to open! Not cool!
The only airport where you can't find a ticket agent anywhere.
Don't fly here during the winter. You will never make it out.
Tailwinds cafe & bistro has pretty good food, try the pesto chicken sandwhich
Oh and the reason u don't have to arrive on time for your flight is because your flight will be arriving late as well!!!
New terminal is great, food service improved, easy in and out. Check out the art by local artists.
Great small airport no lines easy security
Really friendly staff. Quick through security. Nice new terminal. Small enough that you can arrive only an hour before your flight.
New terminal is a lot bigger than the old one so try and show up at least an hour before
Love the new airport! Small but sophisticated!
New terminal looks really nice will be a lot better with new concessions
Great airport. Though they super examined my enhanced license and I thought they were supposed to make it quicker. Efficient though
By all means don't come expecting the usual Starbucks or national coffee chain to satisfy your caffeine addiction. Nothing doing. There is a vending machine with amped up energy drinks though.
It's really a small airport, so you can arrive 1 hour before your departure.
Nearly every flight here leaves late...incompetence or just a way of life? You decide
I'm with Dan ... Easy in & out. Best airport around!
I actually love this airport... Contrary to the other tips. You can show up 30 minutes before your flight and you're good to go!
