Boise Airport Ranked One of the Top in the Nation


Travel+Leisure Magazine Ranks Boise Airport As One of the Top in the Nation

Boise, Idaho – Boise Airport was ranked seventh in Travel + Leisure Magazine’s America’s Best Airports listing in their October 2013 issue (click here to view). In their annual survey of the ‘World’s Best Awards 2013,’ Travel + Leisure readers ranked 67 domestic airports in six categories: flight delays, design, food and drink, shopping, check-in, and location.

The magazine’s readers identified a growing trend with busy travellers, a focus on smaller airports specifically for their smooth check-in process and efficient layouts, as well as the friendly atmosphere that makes the travel experience a lot less stressful. Boise Airport was noted as #1 for fewest flight delays and as “the very model of an efficient airport.”

As with the airports ranked above it, Boise Airport scored high with our free Wi-Fi access and recharge stations for all those electronic devices air travelers love.
