Richmond Int’l Airport (RIC) is the gateway for Virginia's Capital Region, offering service via AirTran, American, Delta, JetBlue, Southwest, United, and US Airways.

The airport is newly remodeled and still really easy to get in and through security so you don't need to get there as early as most airports. Security will take 15 minutes or less.
I'm glad RIC isn't old & busted any more.
RIC has three Caribou Coffee locations: one in the Atrium (pre-security) and one in each concourse (post-security). Great coffee selections, teas, and some frozen bevs as well. Enjoy!
hit up the WaWa right outside the airport entrance for food, coffee, fuel for rental car.
Don't try and show up early like you would for a normal airport. Checkin + security rarely lasts more than 15 minutes.
Don't forget your toothbrush.
Picking up an arriving loved one? 2 free parking options: 1) Cell Phone Waiting Lot on Terminal Drive and 2) Hourly Parking in the decks if staying less than 60 minutes.
I can't believe the TSA guy asked me to make the Kanye West Illuminati Triangle with my hands in the body scanner.
Power up! Free recharge stations added at all gate areas.
TSA team is a hot mess - at least at the B Terminal. Be prepared to wait in line & don't try to ask questions (they'll just roll their eyes & continue talking to each other)!
@flack4ric is a helpful guide to the airport.
Leave your gun at home. It'll just slow ya down.
While waiting on a flight, I hit the Caribou!
Stop in one of the new Club Level Grills and use the power outlets under the seats! Great upgrade!
Great airport with free wifi. Our little portal to the rest of the world.
You've got the power! Free recharge stations between all gates in Concourses A and B, plus quite a few in the new Club Level Grill.
In terminal B skip CheeburgerCheeburger and hit Club Level instead. Same amount of time, friendlier service, better food and same price.
Love RIC everyone is so nice.
If you have 2 bags to check on AirTran, definitely upgrade to Bus Class for only $4 more.
Pat down? Depends. Is the agent hot? Lol
Try the airplanes here's they are great
tip the bag handler
Easy access from the highway to the jetway offering nonstop flights to major domestic destinations and connecting service to points around the globe.
Try the Jets!
Nice charging stations - and plenty of them - on B Concourse!
If you have airplane ear, pain from pressure changes, use Afrin before departure! No more pain!
tsa agents are the laziest and most worthless planet. I was asked by one to stack the bins on the cart as she continued to talk to laquanda about gettin her hurr did. useless.
Everything closes at 9pm.
They have free WiFi!!! Surf on
Love the free wifi
Virginia Lottery tickets are available for purchase here!
Cannot express how grateful I am that in only 30 minutes after I get in my car at home, I am at the gate.
Window seats seem to be best for naps
B Terminal security team is incredibly frustrating. They checked my iPad for explosives. The woman that did it was literally looking for something to do...I heard her tell a coworker!
Don't fly to Chicago late in the day.
Watch out, the planes here will get you "high".
Great speed at security on A concourse I can see this will my airport of choice when coming and going from DC.
Very nice TSA agents in A concourse.
Traveling with pets? Check out RIC's Pet Relief area by the South Garage Plaza.
New priority lines in security! Such a breeze for frequent visitors to get through now.
Use James River Transportation for great comfort & car service. Better than a taxi & flat rate cost is as affordable. Love it.
Never fly Delta...worst customer service ever.
If you don't like the letter S, try Cheeburger Cheeburger.
Apparently they frown upon putting small children in your carryon.
Club level grill serves breakfast
As of 10/11/13 there is now TSA Pre-Check. Make sure you have filled out all your information with your airline prior to arriving at the airport if you have TSA Pre-Check or Global Pass.
Delta is the ideal case study in how to fail.
