Boise Airport (BOI)
History, Facts and Overview
(Boise, Idaho - ID, USA)
The city's very first airfield dates back to 1926 and was located on the exact site where the Boise State University currently resides. However, the Boise Airport (BOI) of today did not come into existence until more than ten years later, opening in 1938. At the time, the airport led the nation's aviation industry, featuring the country's longest runway, which measured almost 2,700 metres / 8,860 feet.
Today, Boise Airport is home to great business and postal facilities, while ATMs are conveniently located in the Ticket Lobby and next to the Food Court and there are some excellent restaurants and cafes. The main eateries include the Concourse Bar, Hyde Park Market and Deli, Maui Taco and the inviting Varsity Grill and Sports Bar.
A newsagent provides a good selection of reading material, while the art gallery is perfect for killing time while you are waiting for your flight. Also worth finding is the Boise River Marketplace, where a range of gift ideas await you.
Most of Level 3 of the Boise Airport terminal building is taken up by the five conference rooms that make up the Snake River Conference Center, which has the latest in high-tech equipment, as well as onsite catering. Regular business services are adequately handled by the airport's business center on Concourse C, while postal and FedEx counters are located by the elevators on Level 2.
