Travel Information

One of the things that makes Boise unique is that it often considered part of both the Northwest and the Mountain West. Either way, it is definitely located in the heart of the West, a stone¹s throw from just about anywhere. And with a major airport served by non-stop flights from almost every large city (and many little ones) it is easy to get there. Once there, you¹ll find a wide range of transportation services ready to serve you.

The Boise Airport (BOI) is serviced by Alaska, Allegiant, Southwest, United , US Airways, Frontier, Delta, Horizon and SkyWest. The Boise Airport is open 24/7.  Ticket counters and check-in kiosks are located on the 2nd floor of the terminal.  Airlines suggest you arrive 90 minutes prior to departure (2 hours during high travel seasons).
